Passster

The smart way to create password-protected areas in WordPress. Protect pages, posts or parts of your content with one, multiple or hundreds of passwords. Activate, configure and your done.

Password Protection

Protect pages, posts and products with passwords and captchas. Simple to setup and insanely secure. You will never want to use the native password restriction from WordPress again.

Modern PHP and Coding standards and SHA-2 password encryption for the best solution for password protecting content.

Simple styling

Directly integrated in the WordPress customizer you can modify colors, texts, hovers and all relevant messages and texts from Passster globally.

You can also overwrite any texts directly within the shortcode.

Useful settings

Tired of endless option pages? Me too. That’s why Passster has limited and well thought settings which you really want to use – nothing more, nothing less.

Activate cookies and Pagebuilder support and manage your keys for external services.

The best features for password protection πŸ•ΉοΈ

Passster is used for a variety of reasons. It’s actively in development and permanently enhanced with awesome features.

Password Protection

Simple and reliable password protection for your content. Secure encrypted with the newest bcrypt standards.

Captcha & Recaptcha

Somethimes all you need is to secure your content against bots and scrapers. The captcha is here to protect you.

Multiple Passwords

The most asked feature for passster. Use as many passwords as you want to protect your content.

Unlock via Link

Give your users and clients direct access to protected areas with a special Base64 encrypted link. Optionally use bit.ly to shorten things up.

Customizer

All visuals for passster could be edited within the WordPress Customizer. Edit colors, sizes, descriptions and more with instant updates.

Hooks & Filter

Passster is packed with several filter and action hooks to modify every neat detail about your content protection experience.

Pagebuilder

Passster has integrations with all the great Page Builder available: Wp Bakery Pagebuilder, Beaver Builder and Elementor. Gutenberg is available soon.

API

Passster comes with API-integration for really large projects. Want to see an example? See this blog post for more.

Partly

Unlock only parts of your content with the additional partly parameter. Great for different content per password.
