Asking for a frind, who would prefer to use the Tor browser.

A plugin for that browser would be acceptable.

Failing that, a security oriented browser which requires a password at launch, otherwise it closes.

Additionally, the browser's data (bookmarks and history) must be encrypted on disk when not running

Must be gratis and run on Windows 10.


[Update] Thanks, @Thhomas for the comment. I ought have said that I don't want a separate Windows user, as it too much trouble.

I was considering putting he portable version into a VeraCrypt container.

A program like WinGuardPro is also an option, with the downsides that it always running in background, and also the browser's data (bookmarks and history) may not be encrypted on disk when not running (I will add that as a requirement)

    The Windows way to get this would probably be a new user account and then grant permissions for that account only. Running the program would require a logon with the credentials of the new account. You also don't want a more general solution like WinGuard Pro, I assume. – Thomas Weller Jan 28 at 13:32
  • Oops! I should have said in the question that that is too much trouble. I was considering putting he portable version into a VeraCrypt container. A program like WinGuardPro is also an option, with the downside that it always running in background. Btw, the domain winguardpro.com is currently for sale (although I am sure that an old version would work. BUT, please see the updated question – Mawg says reinstate Monica Jan 28 at 13:36
