Why?
There are 3 reasons (maybe more?) to use this tool:
– In case the police or other thugs come busting in (or steal your laptop from you when you are at a public library as happened to Ross). The police commonly uses a « mouse jiggler » to keep the screensaver and sleep mode from activating.
– You don’t want someone to install backdoors or malware on your computer or to retrieve documents from your computer via USB.
– You want to improve the security of your (Full Disk Encrypted) home or corporate server (e.g. Your Raspberry).
[!] Important: Make sure to use full disk encryption! Otherwise they will get in anyway.
Tip: Additionally, you may use a cord to attach a USB key to your wrist. Then insert the key into your computer and start usbkill. If they steal your computer, the USB will be removed and the computer shuts down immediately.

Additional requirement for OS X users
In order to make usbkill work on OS X, you have to install python3 by using brew:
