Watch this quick video tutorial on how to protect your website using passwords.
Using a password, you can now restrict access to any page on your website. There are two types of passwords.
If you like to protect multiple pages on your site using the same password, then use the site password. This enables you to share one password with many users who are permitted to access the many pages it unlocks.
Otherwise, to protect each page using a separate password, use page password. Suppose a page should only be accessed by one user, you could protect it with a page password, and share the password with the user.
How to set a Site Password?
1. Access the Settings page.
2. The Site Password field is in the Password Protection section. Type a password and save it.
Note that setting a site password alone will not protect any page. You will have to explicitly pick the pages you want to protect, and specify the type of password you want to protect it with. Here is how.
1. On the site builder, select "Manage Pages" from the wrench menu.
2. You'll see all your pages will be listed, and a lock icon beside each page. Click on the lock icon of the page you want top protect.
3. Select the check box labelled, "Protect this page."
4. Select the type of password you want to protect this page with.
5. Save the changes.
If you choose Site Password here, the password you had set in the settings section will be applied. If you haven't set one yet, you can do it here too.
If you choose the Page Password, you'll be prompted to set a unique password for your page. Type a password and save the changes.
Note again that for password protection to take effect, you will have to publish your website first.
Whenever a protected page is accessed by a user, here is how they will be prompted for the password.
