10.2  |  A lockdown software program (e.g. Deepfreeze) is installed on public computers


Having lockdown software installed on public access technology prevents patrons from changing the systems' configurations and can minimize out-of-service devices due to harmful software that patrons might try to install on library computers. Lockdown software can be installed on public computers, laptops, eReaders, iPads, or tablets. Lockdown software can also be used in combination with master images in a double layer system that protects a library's computers and makes it easy to restore computer configurations. Common lockdown programs used by public libraries include Fortress, Deep Freeze, and Clean Slate.
