Add a password to your Focus preferences, allowing a useful parental control mode for kids, or for getting a friend to help you lock down your Mac.

Password Mode

In addition to hardcore mode for locking down preferences while a session is running, Focus can also lock preferences entirely. This is useful for parental controls or if you have a trusted friend who can set the password when you need the extra push.

Focus sync

Open Preferences > General and check Password mode. Enter the password twice to confirm the change, and you'll be immediately prompted with a locked preference panel. Now to make any changes to the preference panel, you'll first have to enter a password.
