Password Protected Published Website


#1

We have some clients that has sensitive information that needs to be protected with a password, is this something you guys have in the works? Thanks!


Can I make a private website that requires a login using webflow?
Password on test domain
#2

That's a great suggestion! We will add that to our list. smile


#3

Is this still in the works, or has anyone figured out how to do this yet?

Thanks!

Hi @LJB it's going to be a while before we implement it, but there's something you can do that would be similar to adding a password to enter your site.

  • Change your subdomain to something like mysite4X918yxcM.webflow.com (unless someone knows your domain, they cannot access your site).
  • Add this to your robot.txt in the SEO tab of your website settings:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /

This will not allow search engines to index your site (it will not be searchable on Google, Bing, etc).

I think I could do that with Webflow only but I might need to work on that. Contact me over Skype. Details are in my profile.


#7

Here is the site I made:
http://password-protection.webflow.com/

Take a look and if you like it and that's what you want please write on this forum. I'll try to find a solution to give this code to you in here as a tutorial.

Hi @bartekkustra this looks great! Can you show me how to do that?


#9

Love this, could you please share the code....


#10

Hey! I'm working on a website design for an oil company and the only thing keeping me from finishing is I need to password protect one page. Could you send me a tutorial to how you made this happen?! That'd be great!!


#11

@bartekkustra can you show me how you did this? Please and thanks!


#12

Hey @bartekkustra, just wanted to make sure you include some disclaimers with this code, because I found ways to work around it pretty quickly. We don't want to set the false expectation that it's bulletproof, and then have users be surprised that someone gained access to a "protected" site or page.


#13

Any ideas, when can we expect something like this? We are a company deciding whether or not to use Webflow for our projects, but we are dealing with some sensitive data and can't use public publish.

Thanks


#14

Thanks for the feedback Jure. We plan on implementing password protection, but it's a big infrastructural change so it will take a while to do right. We want to provide the option with the highest security. Thanks!


#15

Hi @bartekkustra

Can you show me the password protection tutorial ?

Any update on this topic?

Thanks

Ali

Hi @Ali

This topic is quite old and we've since implemented it directly in Webflow.

If you click on the hosting tab within a site's settings you'll see a section where you can add a username and password.

Let me know if you have anymore questions!


#17

One additional note, the Password Protection feature is available for Professional plan memberships and higher. Cheers, Dave


#18

hi, I'm a designer using web flow to build my portfolio and its been such a breeze to use so far! lately i need to password protect some of my pages that have client sensitive information and i realize i cannot do that without upgrading my plan. I'm just starting out so i'm not really professional or an organization also i just need a few pages password protected and not the whole website. is there a way to do that at all?


#19

how do you go to this setting? can you do this with free account? thanks.

Hi @wicked7578 smile

This is how you go about setting up a password protected website in Webflow:

Please note, that you can only use this feature with a "Professional" plan subscription or higher.
