How to Easily Password Protect a WordPress Page

Table of Contents

If you want to protect certain pages on your WordPress website from the public, password protection is the best way to do it. This can be helpful if you have content that you don’t want to share with everyone or if you want to restrict access to certain members of your team. In this post, we will discuss how to easily password protect a page on a WordPress site and why it’s important.

Why You Might Want to Password Protect Pages on Your Site

You may want to password protect certain pages on your WordPress website for a variety of reasons. For instance, you may have information that you only want specific people (like employees or customers) to see and access. Or maybe you have confidential documents or files that should only be shared with people who have the correct credentials. Password protecting pages is an easy way to make sure that this sensitive information stays secure.

How To Password Protect a Page on Your WordPress Site

Fortunately, setting up password protection isn’t difficult at all! If you are using the classic editor in WordPress, all you need to do is open up the page or post where you want the password protection and then scroll down until you find the “Visibility” section in the right sidebar. From here, simply select “Password protected” from the drop-down menu, enter your chosen password into the box provided, and then click “Ok”. Once saved, anyone who wants access will need this password in order to view the page or post.

If you are using Gutenberg as your editor in WordPress 5+, there is also an easy way for you to add passwords! All you need to do is open up the document/page/post where you would like the protection and click on “More Options” in its top right corner. Then select “Status & Visibility” from the options available and choose “Password Protected” from its visibility settings drop-down menu. Finally, enter your desired password into its designated box and save your changes!


Password protecting pages on your WordPress website can be incredibly helpful if there are specific pieces of information that should not be accessible by everyone who visits your site—or even just by those who have accounts with your business or organization. Fortunately, setting up this kind of security is simple and straightforward; all it takes is a few clicks of a button before anyone wanting access will need a special code provided by yourself! So if any part of your website needs some extra security measures put in place, now you know how easy it can be done with WordPress!
