Password Protected Categories hides any type of WordPress category or taxonomy. Only specific users, roles, or people with the password can access the private area. Create private areas in WordPress. Unlock them with a password or user login. WordPress Password Protected Categories makes it easy to protect areas of your website – with or without individual user accounts. Add one or more passwords to a category and instantly protect that category, its sub-categories, & all its posts.

Restrict WordPress categories by user role or user account. Logged in users see their protected categories. Password protect any custom post type with hierarchical taxonomies (categories) – portfolios, events, products & more. Password protected categories (and their posts) are automatically hidden and no-indexed from search engines. Visitors can login from a single page or sidebar. The Password Protected Categories plugin will direct them to the correct category, based on the password. We’ve tested with more themes and plugins than anyone else. Supports Product Add-Ons, Quick View, Dynamic Pricing & others.
