Confused on how to password protect FileMaker Pro v13 file

Post

I've recently upgraded my FMP from v8.0 to v13.  I built a new db by trying to drag & drop a .numbers file into FMP and it didn't work so I exported it as a .xlsx file from Numbers and got it into a .fmp12

Now I'd like to Password protect that simple database.  I'm simply wanting to put a password on that sole file.  Since I'm new, the permissions and rights and administrator, etc is confusing.  How do I lock up that self contained little file so only I can open it and search the contents for data.  I share that file across all my Mac devices, iMac, MacBook Air, iPad and iPhone via Dropbox.

Would appreciate a couple pointers.

 

Thanks,
