    Is there any Browser locking software to lock down browsers?


    Not the password managers in the browser, but something to actually lock the entire browser so it can't be opened without a password.

    No and no, just my desktop computer. This would be for the browser only.

    I did try that, it only locks the password manager as far as I can tell, there are no settings to keep the browser itself from opening and being used. So I'm not sure what the article is explaining.

    I guess I'm not understanding what you want to do.

    You want to use a browser only for yourself and no one else can use it?

    You can only do this with a password that is locked with a specific password. If you sync PCs, phones, ect... this may not work.
