Password-protection is a feature of the Pro Plan that we offer for Notion websites. So, if you have a Notion-built website that you want to protect with a password, we're now going to teach you everything about it.
How to password protect Notion websites and pages
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:
- Go to your website's dashboard and select a website
- Hit the "Pages" section on the left side's menu
- Select a page (or the whole website)
- Go to "Password"
- Check "Password-protect this page"
- Type your password
Let's get to the fully-detailed guide on how to do all of this!

- 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?
Then, go to the public version of your website, and you'll see something like this:
That's it! You've just locked a Notion page with a password. So easy, isn't it?
Now, as soon as your users enter the right password, they'll be able to see what's on your website.
