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.

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

Here are some reviews from current users of the plugin.


Works so well and I love the customisation tabs – THANK YOU!


Works great. Very useful for some types of websites. Better, than build-in protection


Pretty simple way to password any content you want! Thanks for great plugin!


[…] This was the PERFECT solution to wrap around the file upload shortcode […]. Am so pleased with the results!


Truly simple. Easiest plug-in of this type that I’ve ever used.


Most plugins I see that do this content protection either do too much or too little. This one does it just right![…]
