How can I set password on apps like Libreoffice on Fedora?

If I can set, how can I unlock it.

I really someone went through this situation and have some clue. I'd like to know about it.

Have a great day.

I think you need to explain what you really want to achieve. Something like setting a password to launch an app does not exist and in my opinion also makes no sense. Please shed some light on your idea.

I guess something like this could be hacked together with PolicyKit but not sure how to approach with implementation. It would definitely involve lots of hackery and in the end might not be secure solution.

As far as I know there's no ready-made solution to require user password for specific apps.
