This feature allows you to keep unauthorized users from tampering with Tixati by using one or more passwords to protect the user interface and/or settings. It can be found in Settings > User Interface > Behavior, and also from the tray menu under the User Interface sub-menu.
This is the master password that can be used to unlock the interface, the settings, and the Password Lock settings window. If it is not set (it can be left blank), the Password Lock settings window will not be protected by a password prompt.
Optionally add one or more passwords, each on it's own line. These can be used to unlock the interface, or the general settings window, but can not unlock the Password Lock settings window. If there are no admin passwords, and no owner password, then the general settings window will show without a password prompt.

Start program locked and hidden in system tray
This option will start the program hidden in the tray if there is at least one password set.
Require password to access settings
An owner or admin password will be needed to show the general settings window.
This system is intended to be a quick and easy way to deter other local computer users from snooping and tampering, but it is impossible to 100% protect your system from a skilled opponent with physical access to your computer. If you need better security, this must be provided at the operating system level using lock-screens, encrypted file systems, and other measures.
