Square Online Password Protection

To enable password protection, your website must be on the Professional plan or higher.

The pages on your website are public by default, meaning anyone can find and view them, but you can also place some or all of your pages behind a password to limit access.

Password protect your whole site

Setting a password for your entire site is very simple.

  1. Log in to your Square Online Overview page

  2. Go to Website > General Settings

  3. Click the Change password protection button and select the option to password protect the whole site.

  4. Save, then publish your website to make your changes live.

If you ever want to disable the password, you can turn it off in Website > General Settings via Change password protection.

Password Protect Specific Pages

You can also password protect individual pages.

  1. Log in to your Square Online Overview page

  5. Change the page visibility to Password protected

  6. Save to apply your changes.

  7. Publish your website to make the changes live.

Visitors who attempt to view these pages will be prompted to enter the password that you created.
