How to protect your entire website

If you’re looking to protect your entire website, you can do so with Passster.

By using Passster, you’ll be able to set up one page that every unauthenticated visitor to your site will be directed to. They’ll then gain access to your site by completing whatever protection method you set (password, CAPTCHA, etc).

Allow the use of cookies

The first thing we’ll need to do is change a setting to allow Passster to use cookies on your website.

To do this, take the following steps:

  1. From your WordPress dashboard, go to Passster > Options and click the toggle button next to Use Cookie.
  2. If you want to, you can set a Cookie Duration. Once a set number of days has passed, your website visitor will need to enter their password again to gain access.
