Global Computer Lock Market Overview:
A computer lock is a physical lock on a computer with an associated key that is used for access control or as an anti-theft device. In the 1980s and early 1990s, IBM's personal computers and some PC-compatible devices included a tubular pin lock on the computer case that performed a different security function depending on the manufacturer. In some cases, the lock would prevent the case from being opened to prevent theft or modification of internal components. In other cases, the lock was used to prevent unauthorized access to the computer by turning off the power, hard drive, or keyboard. Built-in computer locks for access control were phased out by computer manufacturers in the 1990s because operating systems and other software included user profiles with passwords. However, computer locks to prevent theft continue to be used, more commonly in the form of Kensington locks that attach cables to laptops and small desktops to prevent them from being taken away.
