Many of you will be familiar with the Windows screensaver/lock screen. If you are going to leave your PC alone for any amount of time where others may have access to it (like in a busy office) then it is advisable to lock it every time you walk away from it using the Win+L key combinations.
But we are talking about the Raspberry Pi here. If you are running it headerless or in command line mode and you are not logged in, then anyone who has access to it will need to log in (you have changed the default password, haven’t you?).
But what if you have a Raspberry Pi in Desktop mode? The same applies to a Raspberry Pi as it does to a PC; you should lock the screen if you walk away from it. This is especially important if you are using a Pi as a server and have Desktop mode running to help with management of a service.
