Safe and efficient

ExeLock is safe and efficient. Unlike other protection software, it does not run in the background to provide its functionality. With the other software, which claims to be password protected, an intruder can simply kill the protection program or remove it from the startup group to disable the entire mechanism. Note, that ExeLock protects programs, not icons so that it remains locked even if you run it from the plain command line.

License Control on Any PC

When protecting a program, ExeLock modifies the binary executable itself, so that it first asks for a password and runs the program only if a valid password has been entered. It does not change the Registry database, nor does it save the password in hidden files or disk sectors. Also, it does not matter whether you protect the program on your hard drive or a floppy disk.

Through the hardware binding mode, the protected EXE can only be run on the authorized computer, which can effectively prevent the EXE file from being distributed without authorization.

FAQs of ExeLock

  • Will the protection still work if I copy the protected executable file to a different machine?

    A: Yes, the protection will still work fine.

  • After I protected a program, what should I do if my antivirus software shows that it has been infected by a virus?

    – Lorine

    Recently I used the app for locking one of my University project files and was amazed to see how it protected. I’m a student, living a hostel life with other mates. I found that they always seem to copy my homework. But this time they won’t be able to as I’ve put a password, hehe. Will recommend the tool to other students as well who are annoyed by getting their homework copied.
