FAQ - Password-protected page:

Is a password-protected page visible on Google and other search engines?

A site with a password is not visible to visitors from a search engine.

This is because setting a password prevents search engine robots (involved in indexing pages) from accessing the page. Then they cannot scan or index it, making it invisible to users.

Can setting up a password for a site be undone?

Yes. In BOWWE, you can assign and remove a password from any subpage with a few clicks.

Can a URL link access a password-protected site?

Yes, but the visitor still needs to know the password to get to the site and see its content - without it, he won't be able to do anything. He will only see the following view:
