Set Up Password Protection for a 1&1 MyWebsite Page

Learn how to set up password protection on a specific page of your 1&1 MyWebsite, requiring the password to be entered before the page can be accessed.

You can protect individual pages within your 1&1 MyWebsite using a password. Password protection is useful if you want to make specific information such as price lists available only to your existing customers.
