The idea is basically the same as Game Protector and LockAnExe: to password protect applications. Preventing access to applications is needed if you have certain applications that are sensitive to be used by other users like registry or file cleaner. By password protecting applications, a user must enter the right password to be able to run the protected application.
Using application password protection software like Game Protector, LockAnExe and now Empathy, applications can be locked and unlocked easily. With Empathy, you simply select the application, specify the password used to protect the application and click the “Protect” button. The locked application will be always protected even if you move it to another location or another computer.
In case something terrible happens to your application after applying the password protection, you can create a backup before the process starts.
After creating backup and applying the protection, you can test it out if the protection does work as intended. If you, someday, decide to unlock the application, you can simply click the “Unprotect” button to turn off the password protection.
Empathy is a portable application designed to work under Windows NT 3.51, Windows NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows Me. It is free, but before you send a postcard to the maker, Michal Strehovsky, you won’t be able to use all of the functions provided.
