When you (or anyone) tries to view your Live Site they will need to enter the password you have set to enter.

  1. Enter correct password
  2. Submit

Search Engine Indexing

If you use a Site Password this will stop all pages of your site being indexed by the search engine crawlers so may affect your SEO performance.

Setting passwords for individual pages

You can also have different, individual passwords for every page in your site.
