Vlock is a console screen locker.

== Install ==
 
+
To install Whisker Menu, emerge it:
You can use it inside an terminal emulator or TTY.
+
Of course running it on a terminal emulator doesn't make much sense since people would still be able to access the rest of your computer if you wouldn't lock it.
+
One reason could be that you log in as root or ssh into another computer and want to log that session.
+
 
+
A more common use is, in case you don't use a login manager like for example GDM/Slim and log into X from TTY you can use it to lock your screen after logging it.
+
So another person can't just kill X and use your terminal while you are gone.
