Since there’s renewed attention on Google Chrome not securely storing passwords, lots of people may be wondering what they can do to prevent people that have physical access to their computer from stumbling across their login information. You know, nosy siblings, snoopy co-workers, those types. If you have a Mac running OS X, you can quickly and easily lock the screen on it to prevent anyone that doesn’t know you’re desktop password from gaining access.
You should always keep your stuff safe, not only because if this, it’s just common sense. If anyone has physical access to your stuff, without a passcode or password, it’s game over.
