Key features.

ExcelLock locks and secures your spreadsheet by scrambling the Excel file. The secured file can only be opened using the free ExcelLock viewer. In the ExcelLock viewer the secured file can be opened but only by applying an unlock key. The ExcelLock viewer will display the file in Excel but it will remove all toolbars, menus and the ribbon. This way the file can only be viewed and used. The file cannot be changed and formulas are not visible. 

For a detailed explanation of how ExcelLock works please read the ExcelLock step-by-step process page.
