    Locking Mac with numeric password or with keyboard shortcut

    I wanted to know if it is possible to lock my Mac with numeric password as like it shows in iPhone. Can you please tell me how to do that? Is it possible to lock the Mac with some keyboard shortcuts too? If so where we have to change those settings? Kindly provide me the needed details. Thanks.

    You can lock your mac with your favorite numeric password by using this app called QuickLock.It can be downloaded here.(http://www.quicklockapp.com/).
    You dont have to press the "Enter" button after entering the password.
    and you can also use custom keyboard shortcuts to lock your mac in the QuickLock App.
