You can set a browse only password for the other databases that can be a
different password from the mother and then use the preference settings on
those secondary db's to use that password as the default. By doing this the
user can open the primary db using the password that has been assigned to
them and the secondary db's will open using the browse only password that
has been set.

I hope this helps.
