    I'm not really sure where to post this question. I'd like to find a way to protect certain apps that in order to open them the system should ask me to type in a password first.

    Is there anyway to do this?

    Just so you know, that technique doesn't really password protect the applications. That only hides them and creates a way to open the hidden application. The application is in no way protected. A person could very easily open the application through other means such as with Terminal.
