ScreenBlur 1.3.0



ScreenBlur is a portable app that enables you to keep your desktop private with a password protected screen overlay or a Desktop Blockout option, which will temporarily mask your wallpaper, shortcuts and gadgets to hide them from prying eyes. You can choose to lock your screen automatically after X minutes of inactivity or whenever you press a user defined keyboard shortcut. The translucent lock screen allows you to keep an eye on open windows or applications, which preventing others from messing with your computer. ScreenBlur can also automatically minimize all open windows.


Other features include an option to mute sound while the screen is locked, multiple lock screen designs, adjustable lock screen opacity (for more or less privacy), automatic lock on restart, and more.

The user interface is clean and surely appeals even to less experienced users. ScreenBlur is able to lock your screen by setting up a password. It is possible to make the app show the characters of your password, as well as remember it.

You can make the program run at Windows start-up, lock the computer if it’s been idle for a specified time interval, and enable or disable sound notification. 

While the screen is locked you can select to hide or minimize anything that appears on your desktop, hide visible windows, icons, gadgets and the taskbar, or minimize windows and hide desktop icons.

It is important to mention that hotkeys are also available for a better control of the entire process, and they can be reassigned. You can lock the screen when you press a certain key, and activate or deactivate the desktop blackout feature.

Moreover, the application allows users to put the computer to sleep if it is locked after the specified time interval, and log the events.

ScreenBlur provides some preset desktop images to choose from, but it also offers the possibility of adding your own images to the list, provided that the file format is PNG, JPEG or BMP. 

 It is possible to add a front and background image, to change the font colors for both of them, and to opt for a preview mode.

With a single click on the program’s icon in the system tray you can lock the screen, activate or deactivate the desktop blackout feature, open the settings menu, or temporarily enable or disable the locking option when the computer is idle.
