This may not be the answer your looking for, but if you want to stop others without your password it may be.
The issue that you run into there is if some malicious code or program gets installed while you are root, then you have no way of stopping it because it's accessing directly from root. Also, if you're still new and you execute a string that you don't fully understand, you could wind up bricking your hdd.
