How do I keep people from looking at files I have authenticated on my computer?


Solution


The easiest way to keep people from accessing files on your computer is to make sure that you have closed open assets. 


If you have authenticated files already, and you need to step away from your computer, you can close files by following the procedure below: 



Go to the application icon, choose the "Close Open Assets" menu item.
Once you have closed the assets, the files are not accessible unless you re-authenticate the files.



Note: "Make sure to take your iLok with you whenever you step away from your computer.  Alternatively if you are using a machine license, click the application icon and select "Logout Machine License" from the menu.
