Here's how you can add a password to lock your Amazon Kindle.

A Kindle is an avid reader's best friend
Although the E Ink tablet space is far more versatile than it's ever been, Amazon's Kindle tabs continue to be the ultimate e-readers for the general public. If you want a cheap, robust little e-reader that won't die for weeks, a Kindle is the right answer.
Sure, you can't many download apps as there's no Google Play Store, but most average folks don't care about all that jazz. If you're an enthusiast, you've probably already got an Onyx Boox Tab Ultra C or something similar anyway.
For everyone else who likes to read and not looking to do much else, the Kindle Paperwhite (11th Gen) is an ideal reading device. It's extremely affordable thanks to Amazon's competitive pricing strategy and you get a lot of space to keep your e-books and audiobooks. If you haven't already got a Kindle, this is the one to have.
Still the best
The Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (11th Gen) may have come out in 2021, but it's still good for use today. It continues to serve as the best Kindle for almost anyone out there thanks to its size, waterproofing, and phenomenal battery life.
