Chrome users can use the free PassBrow extension to lock the browser with a password. It allows you to set a password so that only authorized people can browse the web on your PC. In addition, the tool is useful for preventing Internet access on computers shared with children or in work environments with little privacy, for example.
After configured, the plugin opens the password entry screen every time Chrome is started. If the password used is incorrect, the browser automatically closes and thus prevents access to the web by the computer. To learn how to lock your Google browser with a password, check out the walkthrough below.
