SuperLock Lite reviewed and rated on

Posted on May 2, 2001


SuperLock is the premier shareware Macintosh security utility. It has been protecting Macs from casual snoopers since 1993, and it protected Macs for two years before that as a program called MacLauncher (which still works properly on the latest Macs!). It can be found on Macs all over the world belonging to students, teachers, governments, and normal, everyday people.

SuperLock 4.0.2 Lite is a slimmed-down version of SuperLock 4.0 Pro. Whereas SuperLock Pro is intended for settings like school labs where multiple people access one machine, SuperLock Lite is for Macs which are primarily used by only one or two people, or by small groups of people (e.g., a family) that don’t mind sharing passwords amongst each other. It is also suitable for environments where the administrator allows users to protect their machines, but still needs to be able to access those machines without chasing down their owners to get a password.




This is a well written security program for the Macintosh given a four lock rating by SecureMac! Although SuperLock Lite does not contain all the features as SuperLock Pro does it still offers a powerful sence of security!

With many other security applications there are a million and two ways to by-pass the security, with SuperLock Lite it disables force-quitting, the user cannot bypassed on startup by holding down the shift key, plus the program hides the desktop and all other applications’ windows on all screens while it’s running so that people can’t view your work-in-progress without logging in.


Interested if an intruder has tried to login? Superlock Lite has full activity logs it can limit the number of login attempts and notify you on next successful login!
