Typically, in all large office environments, corporate and government departments, it is a policy to lock your PC when away from your desk. Massive penalties apply if any individuals PC Desktop is left unattended and unlocked.

No matter what software is used in any environment, if you can access the PC, the files can always be altered by freely available database explorers. This is exactly how we export other Accounting packages into GeeDee.
Passwords can be a false and misleading security on some software products.


Passwords are always typically stuck to the monitor in question or are too weak for any real security.



See below link. A Screen saver with a password is by far the best option. Having an automated screen saver lock or locking session/PC is the only way to truly secure a system.
Lock Your Windows Account on Demand
If you’re logged in, but need to leave the computer for some time, you can quickly lock your account, so no one can access it. To do this, do one of the following things:


   Press the Windows logo key and the letter ‘L’ at the same time.

   Press Ctrl + Alt + Del and then click the Lock this computer option.

  Create a shortcut to lock the screen.



Use the Windows Built-in Screensaver to Lock Your Computer
You can set the screensaver settings so it locks your computer automatically when your away. Once you set the screensaver settings, you can prevent users from changing the screensaver (and also the wallpaper).


*PC Desktop is open = The files on that PC and network are open for possible change.
