sometimes when I am working with my fedora, people tend to peek in my screen and wonder what I am doing. So, I started using multiple workspaces, but then these friends started checking all my workspaces for what I been upto. I changed shortcuts to change workspaces yet they inserted widget on my taskbar and switched the workspaces. Is there a real way to HIDE a workspace or protect it with password or encrypt it?

I use lxde fedora 19.

Can't you just lock the screen when you leave your desk? Also, "they inserted widget on my taskbar and switched the workspaces" is not something a friend would do. Tell them to stop doing that. –  Daniel Beck Apr 13 '14 at 10:31
Yeah, but that way I can not deceive a person peeking. When I say 'peeking' i mean looking into my system with my permission. –  user2215912 Apr 13 '14 at 10:33
