Password page


Before you launch your store, you can use Shopify's password page feature to restrict access to your store. When the password page is active, all store pages are hidden and will not appear in search engine results.

Tip | See our blog post about how to use your password page as a marketing tool with a default template you can add to your store to get started.

Quick setup

The template includes preset sections and layout to get you started. In the theme editor, you can customize content, settings, and overall page design with theme sections.

Open the Password template in your theme editor to customize the headings, password message, newsletter signup, and social icons and sharing blocks.

Shopify See Shopify's guide on Password protection for your online store ↗.


In your theme editor (Customize):

  1. Use the Templates selector to open Other > Password.

  2. Click on the Password page section to open the settings.

  3. Select a Background image.

    We recommend images that are square (1:1) or landscape (3:2) (wider than tall) with a minimum width of 2500px for optimal quality across all devices.

  4. Set some Heading text, and a Text body.

  5. Check the Show share buttons checkbox to show social sharing buttons.

    These buttons can be clicked by customers to generate social media-friendly links on their social media profiles.

  6. Click Save.
