Welcome. What is that program for? Can you please describe what you want put a password on?

If you are referring to files like productivity documents like for word processing, spreadsheets, or presentations then use LibreOffice and choose File->Save As and then click "Save with password"

If you are referring to sending e-mail, then see Thunderbird and its Enigmail plugin. It supports the OpenPGP standard for encryption.

If you are referring to some other activity please clarify what it is you want encrypted.
