I wanted to type a diary on my laptop and my family is always VERY nosy, so is there a way I may require a password to open a folder? Are there any methods I can use to protect documents? Thanks, I'm such a newbie!

Second hit seems promising :)

Good luck =P

Here is a website of a program that is in software center.
Almanah Diary (http://live.gnome.org/Almanah_Diary)

There are other things there too. Just open software center and type "diary" in the search area.

If your using openoffice is there any reason you don't want to password the document??
