When a site is in development it’s common to want only select people to be able to see it, while not allowing the site to be publicly accessible. Password protecting your site is simple and easy with Force WP’s password protected feature. You can enabled password protection for either your production and/or staging site, allowing your team to develop and review your site on Force WP before going live .
How to password protect an install:
- Navigate to the Force WP admin for the install you’d like to password protect.
- In the “Password Protected” section, check the box for the environment you’d like to protect: Production, Staging, or both.
- If you’d like to set a different password than the system default, click the edit button and enter a password of your choice. Passwords must be at least 6 characters long.
- Click Save.
- To disable password protection, simply uncheck the boxes and click save.
