Here you can set other options as well. Once both your password is set and key is created system monitoring starts. Now the Predator will keep checking for the key on your USB Flash drive, and if it doesn’t find the USB Flash drive, obviously the key too is absent, in such case it will lock your system.

You have the choice, either to enable or disable the ‘Always Required’ password option, using ‘Always Required’ is a better option, reason being if you yourself forget the USB Flash drive, you can log in to your system using the password.

You can also view the log, which shows you all the activities done by Predator. Have a look at the snapshot of Predator log below.

Predator overall is a great app, locking and unlocking the system was never so easy.
