Square Online Password Protection

Note: Using password protection requires an upgrade on your Square Online site.

The pages on your Square Online site are public by default which means anyone can find and view them. If you wish to make all or part of your website private, you can place some or all of your pages behind a password to limit access.

Note: Password protection is only available for standard pages, but you can use password protection to selectively hide items on your website to sell them exclusively. Learn more about selling hidden items with Square Online.

Password Protect Your Entire Site
