Usage Instruction:
After installation, click the action button once to open WhatsApp Web next to your current tab.
Enter your password and confirm it in the confirmation box.
Press the "Change Password" button to activate the password protection. From now on, the extension will block  WhatsApp access on any subsequent requests.
Press the action button to lock WhatsApp Web. This will lock all open instances of WhatsApp. The extension will open a new, locked one for you if there are no instances.
You can also configure a keyboard shortcut for the action button. This way, you can quickly lock WhatsApp when needed.
Risk impact

Password Lock for WhatsApp Web requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Password Lock for WhatsApp Web is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
