How to Lock Computer Temporarily when Wrong Password is entered

When you are not present someone ‘unauthenticated’ might try to log in to your computer. He will try to guess your password and will surely make several attempts. But by using this Trick if any “unauthenticated’ guy tries to Login in your computer by ‘guessing’ password then your computer will get automatically locked for 1 hour or time you have specified. Simply, When a wrong password is entered more than 2 times, your computer will not allow any one to login for 1 hour or less or more time ( as specified by you ) .

So as usual follow the below steps ( pics will help you to understand ) :

1. Open Start Menu
2. In Search Box, type “Local Security Policy” without quotes(”marks) and hit enter
3. Now Local Security Policy window will appear see the pic below :

4. Double click on Account Policies which is present on left
5. Select Account Lockout Policy
6. Click Twice on Account lockout threshold entry
7. A New Dialogue box will appear, now enter the number of times a password can be entered
For example, if you want that right password can be tried to enter only in twice than in this dialogue box you will write 2. Now do as shown in the pic below .

8. Windows will ask you settings for Account lockout duration and the length of time to Reset account lockout counter. By default 30 minutes are select; you can select another time, or go with the defaults by clicking Ok.
9. That’s It !!
10. Now whenever any one tries to enter password more than 2 times than your computer will not allow him or her to enter password again until the time period you have selected.
To Change setting, go through these steps Again.

That’s It !!
You can change 2 with number of chances password is allowed to enter with your choice.
You can also change 30 with time period of your choice, it is in minutes.

Remember : 
If both the times the password was inputted wrong,then even if u enter the right password it can't be accepted,even you have to wait until the time period is over . So think before you use it.

Enjoy !! Safe Computing !!
