Google Chrome, nowadays is the most used browser and with the launch of Chrome books, Google chrome would be the most certain choice when it comes to browsers. If Chrome is your default browser, then it is very certain that it may contain very private information which might be confidential and not to be shared with anyone. Sometimes, your friend, your bro or sis or whoever accesses your computer(or laptop) and opens up Chrome. Then he or she might just check out your private information. You might be thinking is there a way to get out from this prob. Let me give you some relief by saying, Yes there is!
Simple Startup Password is a Google Chrome extension which password protects you’re browser. It asks for a password every time you start Google Chrome.
Are you wondering how to set the password? Don’t wonder, read on!
1. Install the extension from here.
2. Click on the ‘wrench’ icon –> tools –> extensions.
3. Find “Simple Startup Password” and click on “Options”.
4. Set the password.
*Don’t laugh at the notification* Thats it! Simple? Of course it is simple. Now, the next time you open Google Chrome, you will see a text box asking for the password but I have a warning for you. Don’t forget the password because if you do, you won’t be able to get the password back because the remind feature isn’t working. You would have to re-install Google Chrome for using it again. This plugin is necessary in order to protect your browser from use by unauthorized persons. This extension is nice and easy to use.
If you want to change the password you can change it in the same way you used when you set the password. Using this extension no unauthorized person can get the opportunity to access your Google Chrome and all your private documents would remain private.
