    'PS3Lock is an authentication-system for the PlayStation 3.
    An personal password protects your PS3 against unauthorized access or gives you a restricted access"

    Information below based on version 0.5.

    PS3LOCK
    How it works
    screenshot_2015_08_19_22_31_36.JPG screenshot_2015_08_19_22_31_44.JPG
    After installation, at first boot you will be prompted to define a password (min. 2 digits, max. 10 digits).
    To set the password you can use the following buttons:


    • ::dir up:, ::dir right:, ::dir down:, ::dir left:
    • :but tri:, :o:, :but x:, :but square:
    • :but l1:, :but r1:

    With :but l3: you can cancel the entry and with :but r3: you can save the password.

    After saving, the PS3 is protected by this password and is required after each restart. After 3 incorrect entries the PS3 will shut down automatically.Authentication is done in the same way as you save it or via an USB device. You have to set up this USB device and this device have to be in "/dev_usb000" (most right, close to BD drive) on PS3 startup. Don't forget to enable "USB authentication" in the settings menu.

    Through the "restricted mode" it is possible to lock the "XMB settings" (except system update) and the "deleting apps/games" in the XMB. In this mode the games under "dev_hdd0/GAMEZ" are hidden (folder renamed in GAMEZx). For this mode no password is needed.

    "PS3Lock sleep timer" gives you a time-limited access to the PS3.
    The sleep timer can set to 0:30h, 1:00h, 1:30h, 2:00h, 2:30h, 3:00h.
    After 3 warning messages (10, 5, 1min before the preset time), the PS3 will be shutdown.

    Password protection for PS3Lock settings and XMB possible.
    Password request for PS3Lock settings and in recurring to XMB (after closing apps/games).
    Perfect child protection
    Restricted mode + PS3Lock sleep timer is the perfect child protection. The restricted mode gives access to the PS3 without a password and through the sleep timer this mode is time-limited. After shutdown through the sleep timer the restricted mode is automatically disabled. If restricted mode is disabled you get access to the PS3 only with password.
    Change Settings

    hope it will be possible to lock chosen user in future. so that one user cnnot mess another user...


    and boot in unlock mode for a certain times, then after the number of times is already consumed, it will boot locked...
    for example, i set locked mode generally, but then i set boot unlock for 2x boot... after that 2 boots, the ps3 will locked completely :)

    This is something I am looking for. Thanks :glee:

    @MixeryMaxe - I was wondering whether its possible to lock just some games with this lock instead of locking the whole games folder.
    Again nice program/app.

    Hi @Jin799 , thanks.

    Maybe it's possible but not with this version. I don't think that i will update this plugin because A i'm very busy with my real life and B the better way would be to rewrite the whole source code :)
    Sorry

    @MixeryMaxe - Yes thanks for letting me know.
    I have kids whom I don't want to access some of the games in multiman so wanted to lock them individually. I don't like the way Sony have put parental control .
    Xbox 360 on the other hand is better parental controls cos I can choose to allow some mature games to be unlocked.

    A possibility that comes to my mind is to edit the .SFO file and change the parental control level for those games.
