How to lock Notion page with password

If you want to lock your website or Notion page, simply go to the website's "Pages" section, select the page that you want to add a password, and then simply type the password.

Here's a quick rundown of the steps:

  1. Go to your website's dashboard and select a website
  2. Hit the "Pages" section on the left side's menu
  3. Select a page (or the whole website)
  4. Go to "Password"
  5. Check "Password-protect this page"
  6. Type your password

Let's get to the fully-detailed guide on how to do all of this!

  2. Type your password in the Password' section
  3. Hit the blue 'Save changes' button

Please make sure to double-check that you've ticked the 'Password-protect this page' button, and make sure to remember the password that you've added. Why not save it in another Notion page?
