Login to Your Password-Protected Page.
A password-protected page on your Wix website can only be accessed through a password protected window. When a visitor accesses a page that you have protected with a password, they will be asked to provide the password in order to access.
Only visitors who know the password can view the page.
A password protected page prevents search engines from crawling and indexing that page. This means that password protected pages do not appear in search results.
To password protect a page:
Click Menus & Pages on the left side of the Editor.
Click the relevant page.
Click the Show More icon.
Click the Permissions tab.
Click Password Holders.
Enter the page's password.
Select the language of your login screen.
