HARDdisk security was written to give some protection from unauthorised use of your Mac. It is a Control Panel which contains INIT code that requests a password before it will allow your machine to startup, hence the name HARDdisk security.

Anyone familiar with System 7.X or 8.X will already be thinking they can bypass this easily by holding the Shift key down during startup. They would be wrong !!
HARDdisk security has a facility to disable the shift key during Startup, this option can be turned on or off in the Control Panel part of the program.

HARDdisk security is not the ultimate in security software and can be bypassed by somebody with a reasonable Mac knowledge. It will stop casual snoopers. If you need heavy security get Empower or some other commercial product.
