Is there any way to protect with password the settings page in Google Chrome? Exactly, the extensions page.

I do not want anyone in my household except me to have access to the settings. The only solution I found was an extension that protects with password the whole Google Chrome web browser, but I need to protect only the settings page.

No, this is not possible as of now.

Sure, there is a way to do that. Chrome, or better Chromium, is open source software available under a permissive, BSD-Like license.

You are free to introduce the changes you need, e.g. a rudimentary hiding of the settings behind a username and password.
