What is Boss Key?

Boss Key is a screen privacy application that has the purpose to protect the privacy of a computer user by instantly hiding applications without loosing data and without closing them.

Which issues does Boss Key solve?

Nowadays the offices are crowded and it is difficult to find a place where one can use a computer in private. Writing a confidential email or entering sensitive information on a web site could be a problem in the crowded office with inquisitive colleagues and a patronizing boss or at home with over-caring and curious relatives. The Boss Key application can solve this issue instantly.

How does Boss Key work?

Boss Key is an application that is loaded automatically when Windows starts and stays invisible in the system. The only way to view it is to use a secret key combination in order to activate it or view its settings. The settings can be password protected too so even if one manages to guess the shortcut the settings will be still hidden. Pressing the secret Boss Key combination the application hides all windows from the screen. At the same time the tool can mute the sound, hide system tray icons, task bar, desktop icons and even switch the display resolution. Once the threat is gone a single key stroke restores everything back to the state before the point of interruption.

Below is a demonstration video on how this works.
