One among other problems Apple users were facing before was battery life. After installing new update, bunch of people have complained about battery down issue. However, if you have problem with iPhone 5 battery—get tips from forum thread.

iPhone 5 users were constantly complaining about random reboots. The device occasionally reboots but its not the huge problem as it returns to normal in 6 to 8 seconds. Almost all applications such as Twitter, Facebook, Mail and Google Chrome on device after installing iOS 6.1 works perfectly.  The new update is safe to install with best feature lock screen and controls in current upgrade.

iOS 6.1 works perfectly on iPad with some issues in connectivity and random reboots. Device works fine but sometimes you are unable to connect to Wi-Fi network but this problem is not as frequent as in iPhone 5. The update on iPad is 76 MB which is less than iPhone 5 which consumes 107 MB of your memory after downloading.  Due to smaller size the installation goes smooth without having any issues.

PC Lock Review 2013

An antivirus software is not enough to protect your data. It only guards operating system files and Registry information. It does not provide any means to encrypt your sensitive data.

Un-encrypted data is at higher risk of data theft than a well-encrypted data. Laplink PC Lock is all about securing your data from thieves and hackers. It protects your sensitive data and keeps all documents safe and secure. It uses upgraded technology to reduce the chances of stealing your data. Apparently it saves your organization from financial loss, privacy & identity theft and improves business reputation.


Why Laplink PC Lock?

This is an interesting question. Many people ask if Windows is providing built-in BitLocker Data Encryption, why is there need to use a third-party encryption software?


Well, BitLocker Data Encryption is available with only Enterprise and Ultimate Editions of Windows. If you’re using Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium or Professional editions, you do not have this feature. The only way to avail this feature is to purchase Enterprise/ Ultimate editions which are costly. Furthermore it takes more time during installation and data backups.

Following are outlined the key features of PC Lock software:

1. Background Encryption: Background Encryption is a silent encryption of your files. The encryption process is carried in invisible mode.

2. Doesn’t Affect Computer Performance: Unlike other software it doesn’t affect computer speed while encrypting your data.

3. Military-Grade 256 Bit AES Encryption: It provides high security encryption- Military-Grade 256 Bit Advanced Encryption Standard Encryption. This encryption is enough to protect your data against thieves and hackers.

4. Web-based Protection: The Web-based Protection is known as Cloud Protection. It is an advanced technology used to store application settings and passwords online.

In short, it provides a powerful encryption that not only protects your data but also prevents uncertainties. Hackers will never able to steal your private and confidential information.

Methodology for Data Encryption in your PC

Data Encryption is encoding of information so that hackers/ thieves/ cyber criminals cannot read the encoded information. An encryption algorithm is used to make the content unreadable; except for the authorized people. An Encryption Key specifies how the message is to be encoded. An authorized person can decrypt the data using the valid Decryption Key.

So far as computer security is concerned, an antivirus software is not enough. Sensitive data on your hard disk is at risk--thieves can steal laptop and get access to sensitive information, computer malware, Trojans can steal confidential information, and so on. This is where the need of data encryption arises. Data Encryption is an advanced data protection technology used in modern business enterprises.


How does Data Encryption Works?

Basically Data Encryption is carried out using data encryption programs such as Laplink PC Lock. It provides a simple and easy to use wizard which you have to follow. Select the files you would like to encrypt, select encryption algorithm and provide other necessary information. You’re done.

Laplink PC Lock- A Sophisticated Data Encryption Software

PC Lock is a sophisticated data encryption software. It provides powerful data encryption to secure your data against physical thieves/ hackers/ cyber criminals.




It ensures your sensitive data is inaccessible to unauthorized people. It provides extra security layer which is compatible with the security software. Even if your laptop is stolen by theft, PC Lock denies unauthorized access to your data using the best encryption technology provided in the world.

Another feature that makes PC Lock unique is Cloud Protection. It simply stores your passwords and settings online so that it becomes simple for you to change them at anytime, anywhere. It provides Military-Grade 256 Bit AES Encryption which is considered as a higher-level encryption algorithm. It encrypts the files and adds a number of features out of which some are administered via particular web portal.

An interesting thing is that it doesn’t affect computer performance unlike other data encryption software. You do not observe slowed speed during data encryption process. The encryption process is performed in a hidden mode (background mode) so that it doesn’t interrupt you in your work.

As default, only documents, spreadsheets, databases are selected for encryption. However you may add other file types such as JPEG, TXT, PDF, HTML and so on. There are no file type restrictions. You may encrypt any type of file.

PC Lock requires you to enter your password and answer two security questions while you log-in to it. During file encryption you may make new values for the failed login attempts. For example after 7 failed attempts the user (probably the person who steals your laptop) will be warned, after 10 attempts local access will be completely denied to him. Hence you can at any time log-in to your Web Portal and disable access to these files or simply delete them.
