Love its bare bones approach.

All you get is a black screen after locking. Just start typing your
password and it turns blue. When you hit Enter you either get your
"session" back or a red screen telling you your password didn't match.

BTW, for those venturing away from X11 into Wayland-land, I have found
swaylock to be a nice alternative. That is, after you

mkdir -p ~/.config/swaylock
echo "color=000000" > ~/.config/swaylock/config

so you don't get blinded by a glaring white screen.

Hope this helps,
