Recommendation: Safe to use, minimal to no impact on site performance.


A very simple way to quickly password protect your WordPress site with a single password.

This plugin only protects your WordPress content. It does not protect and images or uploaded files so if you enter and exact URL to in image file it will still be accessible.

Features include:

  • Password protect your WordPress site with a single password.
  • Option to allow access to feeds.
  • Option to allow administrators access without entering password.

Please note, this plugin works by setting a cookie to allow access to the site. If you are using a caching plugin or web hosting such as WP Engine that has in-built caching, you will need to configure the caching service to be disabled if the Password Protected cookie is set.
