If you’ve ever wanted to control who can preview your site before it goes live, today is your lucky day. We are pleased to announce password protection for sites in development. Now you can require a visitor to supply a username and password to access your site, ensuring that only approved users can view your work in progress.
Password protection is available for sites both in production and in staging, and is as simple as checking a box. And when you’re ready to go live, remove protection with one click and you’re ready to launch.


To learn more about how to enable password protection for your site, check out our knowledgebase article, Password Protecting Your WP Engine Site.
