    Hello all. Just wondering..is there a way to password protect an app that I keep in my dock, so that when I click on it to open it, I get prompted for my password, and if I don't happen to know it (read: someone else is on my computer) it will deny access?

    I've tried google and permission settings, but the best I could come up with is to keep the app in a password protected dmg file, which seems like a bit much for what I need.

    If you want to share your computer with others, create a separate, limited-access guest account. Do not let other people use your account.

    This is the easiest, most secure, and most reliable way to password-protect anything.
