SAFtyLatch 1.05

SAFLINK has designed the product to be easy to use. A tutorial walks new users through the process of setting up a voice password and the program runs as a memory resident utility in the background. To change the settings, log a user on or off, or set up a new user, it is simply a matter of right-clicking on the signature keyhole logo in the system tray. To protect or unlock a folder, it is simply a matter of right-clicking the target and choosing an option from the SAFtyLatch menu.

SAFtyLatch supports unlimited users and is ideal for a shared PC. The first user to set up an account becomes the administrator by default. It is a simple matter, however, to transfer these rights, if required, to other users. In any event, once a user logs on, all of his/her own files and folders are available for access, while those of other users are marked with a red cross to indicate they can't be accessed.

It is important when using SAFtyLatch to make sure you log off after using the PC; otherwise other users can access your files, and it is still possible for encrypted folders to be moved to the recycle bin (they can only be deleted by their owner, though). The encryption is strong enough for everyday use and can double as a way to limit the use of certain applications, such as games, to certain times (through encrypting their program folders).

It isn't possible to come up with your own individual password, unfortunately; all users have to stick to "my voice is my password". This doesn't limit the usefulness of SAFtyLatch in any way, though.

The program allows for some variation in a person's voiceprint, but to avoid problems that might crop up when a person's voice changes beyond the program's ability to recognise them (when they have a bad cold or sore throat, for example), the makers have devised a backup system that can unlock any file or folder.

If you ever have a need to protect files on your system, SAFtyLatch can do the job simply and without fuss.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
