Password Protect WordPress Content

Firstly, you need to determine which type of content you want to protect. Our plugin provides 3 different types of protection:

To protect the whole single page or post, simply go to Pages or Posts menu and hover over its title. Then you will see the “Protect” button which allows you to protect the content immediately.

Alternatively, you can password protect content while editing using the switch button in the editor page. Also, PPWP Pro allows you to create and manage all passwords at the same place.

Essential Settings

Under your WordPress admin, click on “Password Protect WordPress” to access our plugin’s settings page.

Post Type Protection

By default, PPWP Pro offers Pages and Posts protection only. Therefore, if you don’t see the option to protect your content, it’s likely you’re trying to protect a custom post type.

If so, you need to add that specific post type in the plugin’s settings first so that it can be protected with our PPWP Pro.

Default: Pages & Posts.

Cookie Expiration Time

Our plugin uses cookies to keep user access within a preset time period after entering passwords. In other words, they can access the content directly until cookies expire. Default: 7 days.

Whitelisted Roles

By default, we allow admin users to access the content directly without entering a password. So you might not see the password form after upgrading to the Pro version. Default: Admin users.
