How to: Notion Password Protect (2024)

Securing your Notion pages with a password can be essential for protecting sensitive information.

While Notion doesn't offer native password protection for individual pages, there are effective workarounds you can use to lock and secure your content.

This guide will cover various methods to password protect your Notion pages and ensure your data remains private.

Why Password Protect Your Notion Pages?

Password protecting your Notion pages ensures that sensitive information, personal notes, or private projects remain secure. This is particularly important for those who use Notion to manage client information, private portfolios, or any other sensitive data.

This guide is for you if:

  • You have Notion pages (or full websites!) that you want to password protect
  • You have sensitive/proprietary info on some of your Notion pages (or all!)
  • You're more of a private person

By the end of this guide, you'll end up with something like this:

How to Password Protect Notion Pages

As we mentioned before, unfortunately Notion has no native feature for password protecting pages, but the good news is that it's very easy to do so using SImple.Ink.

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.

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

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

Step 1 - Connect Your Notion page to Simple.Ink

If you don't yet have a Simple.Ink account, you can create one under 1 minute, just simply pasting your Notion page link. You go to Simple.Ink or you can paste your Notion link in the right-top corner, without leaving this page.

Step 2 - Select the page you want to lock

First of all, go to the Dashboard - here you can see all of your websites. Next up, select the page where you want to add the password.

Step 3 - Go to the 'Password' menu and add yours

Upon clicking on the page that you want to protect with a password, you'll see this new window:

Initially, the menu will open on the 'SEO' section, but upon going to the 'Password' menu, you'll see this window.

So, you now want to do three things:

  1. Tick the 'Password-protect this page' button
  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?

Then, go to the public version of your website, and you'll see something like this:
