Enabling Password Protection for Your Website

When you publish your website, anyone on the Internet can access it. Using the Website Builder Tool, you can restrict access to the entire website or individual pages to certain individuals. For example, you may want to have a page on your site with internal company announcements that only your employees can see.

To enable password protection for the entire website:

1. Click the Website Properties option in the top panel under the Website Overview tab.

2. Select Password Protection on the left-hand side of the popup window.
