1. EC (EN).png

*Note: This feature is only available for Taiwan / Hong Kong stores.

The "Password Protection" app offers a simple and convenient user interface to assist you in encrypting pages that are not yet publicly accessible or are intended only for specific customers. For instance, pages with exclusive VIP member offers or marketing pages that require prolonged setup. The flexible design allows you to customize the encryption duration, preventing customers from accessing the page inadvertently and reassuring you while you're planning store campaigns.

This article will cover the following:
