Cisdem AppCrypt for Windows main features:
1. Lock apps with password
This app locker for Windows 10 and Windows 11 can lock individual apps on a Windows PC with the password set by the user. To successfully open a locked app, one needs to enter the password.
It’s easy to add apps to lock. Users can do it by drag the desktop shortcut or EXE file of an app into AppCrypt’s interface.
2. Automatically relock apps after a period of inactivity
This app locker for Windows has an Auto Lock feature. If enabled, this feature will automatically lock unlocked apps after they are inactive for the period of time set by users, for example, 1 minute.
3. Record failed attempts to open locked apps
If one tries to access a locked app and enters a wrong password, the app will remain locked. In addition, AppCrypt will record the failed attempt, with app name, date and time.
4. Block websites on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge
As a website blocker for Windows, AppCrypt allows users to block specific websites and pages on Chrome and Edge. Also, with a simple click, users can add all popular websites of a category (like social media) to block. In addition, it can block URLs that contain user-specified words.
5. Block all websites except a few
This website blocker can also block all websites except user-specified ones. To do so, enable the Block all websites option and add specific websites.
6. Lock apps and block websites permanently or at scheduled times
By default, a locked app or blocked website will remain locked or blocked all the time. But there is flexibility thanks to the Custom Schedule feature and the General Schedule feature.
To lock/block a certain app/website only during certain periods, turn on Custom Schedule for it, add a schedule and set the times. Multiple schedules are allowed. The general schedules apply to all the locked/blocked apps/websites that don’t have a custom schedule.
7. Set up AppCrypt on multiple PCs with a click
Users can import or export AppCrypt configuration with a single click, making it easy and quick to set up AppCrypt on multiple machines.
