This doesnt work :-/ I installed it and yes it asks for a password once I manually lock it but DOES NOT ask for password when browser is opened (despite checking the box for doing so). Also, I was able to disable and uninstall this without having to provide credentials..lame.. any other suggestions?

Crap … good idea, but can kill in chrome’s task manager, therefore not secure whatsoever.
