Simple and lightweight

By AtDevep on May 29, 2023

Very simple to use. I use this almost on every project protecting the site before publishing. Thank you!

Works Great!

We've been using this plugin for years. Does what it's supposed to and simple to use.

Does the job!

Simple to setup and use, works as it should, and their support is super-responsive and helpful.

Easy and customizable

"Allow Rest API Access" and "Allowed IPs" features made my day, thank you!

Good support

After some hiccup with the IONOS SSO plugin the support helped me getting the plugin to work with some function.php code and the IONOS plugin enabled.

Using it on every staging site

By Dave Loodts (davelo) on February 16, 2023

Thank for the plugin. Usefull for staging sites!

Great support and response

By care2michelle on January 6, 2023

This plugin came highly recommended, but upon initial install, it wasn't allowing me to do the customization I wanted. I reached out via the support forum and the author diligently worked with me over the course of weeks to address the problems (which were related to multisite compatibility), even sharing with me a beta version to see if the problems were fixed. While it still isn't 100% what I want, I have not had a better support response on a free plugin. I would highly recommend Password Protected.

Passt alles

Das Plugin ist einfach zu handhaben und erfüllt seine Funktion.

Quite literally the worst plugin I've ever used

By cirrus123 on December 25, 2022

Spent half a day trying to figure out why my website was inaccessible to me.

Deleted the plugin and realized that it was creating an HTTP error. What horrible coding.

use it on all my dev sites ❤️
