“The password protected categories are easy to install and set up. It works well with EDD and I’m excited to use it for other membership features and paid products in the future. Great customer service!”

“I’m looking for a plugin to set up password blocks for custom post types. A single user account would be too complicated for the site I’m building. Password Protected Categories does the job perfectly!”

Protecting any content
WordPress password protection categories make it easy to protect various areas of your site without the need for separate user accounts.
Simple password protection measures
Add one or more passwords to a category, and immediately protect that category, its subcategories, and all posts.
Any page, post, or taxonomomy
Password-protect any custom post type via hierarchical categories (categories) – combinations, events, products, etc.
Private file classification
Like private posts, you can create “private categories” that only logged in admins or editors can see.
Hide from search engines
Password-protected categories (and their posts) are automatically hidden and will not be indexed by search engines.
Central login page
Visitors can log in from a single page or from the sidebar. The password protected category plugin will direct them to the correct category based on their password.
We’ve tested more themes and plugins than anyone else. Support for product add-ons, quick view, dynamic pricing and more.
