What's New in Version 1.2

New Features:
- Themes: Spy Lock now comes with themes. You can easily change the look for Spy Lock's lock screen using themes that come with Spy Lock or ones that you can download from the Spy Lock website. You can even build your own themes using our Theme Packer app also available from Spy Lock's website.

- Recording: You can now choose to have Spy Lock start recording immediately when the screen is locked or when an attempt is made with an incorrect password.

Bug Fixes:
- Command + Q: This hotkey was setup previously to be unavailable as soon as Spy Lock started. This has been changed to make the hotkey unavailable only when Spy Lock is locked.

- Command + Option + Esc: This hotkey could be used to bring up the force application window and could be used to force quit Spy Lock. This has been fixed so that Spy Lock is no longer affected by this hotkey.

- Command + Option + Shift + Esc: This hotkey when held down for 3 seconds could be used to force quit the front most application. This has been fixed so that Spy Lock is no longer affected by this hotkey.

Customer Reviews

Works Great!

Everything works great for me. ONE suggestion: is it posable to not have the green light on my camera go on when the camera is turned on? Might not be possible but would be good option to have.


This keeps everyone out, my kids, husband….their friends, and I have a really great God of War theme….Thank you!!! Also, the breakin attempts are pretty fun to laugh at….

Works OK, but seems to slow my system

My issues may have nothing to do with this app, but it often becomes unresponsive. Also, I cannot seem to uninstall it.
