Site & Page Passwords

  • Updated

You can set a password for your entire website or for an individual page.


Site Passwords

If you want to launch your website to a limited audience or keep it private during your testing phase, you can protect it with a password. Everyone who knows the password will be able to access your site. You can change or remove the password at any time. When you create or change a site password, everyone who has previously accessed the site will also need to enter the new password.

Site passwords are available on all paid plans. If you are on our free plan, you'll need to upgrade before being able to use site passwords.

How to set a site password

You can set the password in your site settings dashboard. Just visit and click on the site you want to manage. Then find the "Password" setting in the settings list. 

After creating, changing or removing a password, you need to click on "Save Password" to apply your changes. The change will become effective immediately. You don't have to publish your site again.



How to set a page password

You can set a password for a specific page inside the Page Meta setting in the editor. Each page can have a different password.


When you have both a site password and a page password, users only need to enter the page password to access a page but won't be able to access the rest of your site without also entering the site password.






What your visitors see

When you set a password on your site, everyone who visits it will need to enter the password before viewing your site. Your site will also not be accessible by search engines or bots. 


Once a visitor enters the correct password, they will be redirected to your normal site content. A cookie will be set to remember the login information of that user so that they don't have to login again the next time they visit. However, if you change the password, all previously logged in users will have to log in again.
