Is there an add-on/extension/software through which I can lock my browsers, Firefox and Chrome. Something which would prompt a password when someone opens browser, but locks automatically when closed.
Or you may use parental control
You can use DIscoLocks to lock any of your browser/IM or any other software as well
But its for Windows XP only!
Thanks Aditya...:) That solved all my problems...
With Chrome download this plugin:
Simple Startup Password will lock Chrome the way you requested.
For Firefox use ProfilePassword acvailable here:
That should meet your requirements.
As a footnote you can also lock your Thunderbird profile should of course you use TB. The download link is on the same page.
Hmmm... discolocks for much better suited as my requirement... as i can lock other programs as well...
Thank you Alan... That was exactly what i wanted...
Go to Tools > Options > Security > Change Master Password (or add master password..)
Not that easy..............
Your method does NOT meet the ops requirements, it only locks stored passwords.
Ah, I see! Sorry!
I see you have posted a way for this problem.. Good!
There's Master password feature in Firefox -
For Google Chrome -
Good one, helpful for chrome users
