Password Protection

Password Protection turns on the password prompt for Universal Shield. After you enable this feature, you will be prompted for a password every time you run Universal Shield and when you try to uninstall Universal Shield. Using a password to protect Universal Shield prevents others from using or uninstalling Universal Shield to bypass your protections.

To enforce password protection of Universal Shield, you must also set up a password using Security > Change Password, otherwise this selection is turned off when you close Universal Shield. For more information, see "Change Password".
