Password Door Step-by-step Tutorial

How does it work?

Password Door adds password protection feature to any programs.

Password Door will terminate the program if the user can not provide the correct password.

Password Door also supports other protection modes such as "Allow", "Deny" etc. A denied program will refuse to be launched; the protection mode "Allow" is useful when use multiple protection items for a single program.

Specifying admin password.

The admin password is very important, not only can it protect the main program of Password Door to prevent unwanted users from changing the settings you have made, but also it can protect the uninstaller so that none can uninstall the software without the admin password.
