How to Set a Page Password on Squarespace

You may want to limit access to a page on your site. You can do this through Squarespace by giving the page a password. Then only someone who knows the password can view the page.

To password-protect a page on your site, type the password in the Password field. Make note of the password you type.

Do not use the same password as the one you use to log in as the site owner. Moreover, choose a password that you don’t use for anything else online. Password security is important, and you want to make sure you don’t jeopardize yourself by using a password you use for access to important online accounts.

Setting a password for a page is not an extremely secure way to password-protect pages on your site. When someone enters the correct password to view the page, their browser will continue to allow them to view the page even if you change the password. If they close their browser, their session ends and they must reenter the password the next time they visit the page.

To remove or change the password, you simply modify the Password field:

  • Change the password: Select the password dots in the Password field and type in a new password.

  • Remove the password: Select the password dots in the Password field and press the Delete key.

As mentioned, password-protecting individual pages is insecure. If you need to guarantee that someone can't see a particular page, you will need to do one of the following:

  • Remove the page from your site.

  • Disable the page so that it’s no longer an active page on your site.

  • Password-protect your entire site.
