You can set a password for your storefront very easily. Setting a password is very useful if you don't want your visitors to see your site running, while you are customizing it. It is also useful for selling only specific customers (B2B).
To set a password protect for your storefront:
- Log in to your admin area and click on Settings >> General Settings.
- Scroll down and find the Site Security field.
- Click on the Password Protection drop-down menu and select "Active" and enter your password.
- If you want, you can set a Display Message for your visitors.
When you wish to cancel password protection, just set your "Password Protection" as "Passive".
