WooCommerce Password Protected Private Site & Categories WooCommerce Password Protected Private Site & Categories

Need a way to create a private store or password protect categories with WooCommerce?


No problem. We have the solution for you. Check out the features of this powerful extension:

Make your entire store private?

Easily lock and hide your entire store including your main shop page, product pages, product categories, product tags the cart and the checkout pages, even the My Account page if you need to.

Hide and lock specific product categories?

Easily lock and hide specific product categories and tag categories while leaving the remainder of your store open and accessible to everyone. It’s easy with this extension.


Whether you want to make an entire password protected private store, or only make selected categories private and password protected, this WooCommerce extension gives you the ability to make it hidden store the way you want.

Hide Store-related Menu Items and Widgets

Instantly hide all store-related menu links, product categories, tags and widgets until the user logins in or enters a private password.

  Discourage Search Engine Indexing

Optionally turn on settings that instruct search engines not to index your entire private site, or just the categories that are made private.


If you want, your site won’t show any trace of a store existing. This extension hides stored related menu items, and WooCommerce widgets. So when a visits sees your site there’s nothing to indicate that you have a store. You give links to whoever you want to access the private parts.

Automatic Redirects

Optionally redirect users if they access a store-related page without been authorized yet. And you can optionally redirect users after they successfully enter a password to access the store. Either way, you gain granular control.

Custom Password Entry Form

Automatically insert a custom password entry form on any store-related page when someone access a page without been authorized yet. Turn on a settings and you’re done. Or use a shortcode and to create your own login page or sidebar login form.


Optionally define 1 or more custom passwords, automatically expire password use, optionally grant access to logged-in users (or users with specific roles), and you can even automatically insert a password entry form on all shop pages, or in a custom page, post, or sidebar widget using a shortcode included with this extension.

General Operation:

Make your store private and require either a secret password for access, or user login for access. When you allow the use of secret passwords then you can define 1 or more passwords, give them whoever you want to, and no user account is required to access your store. A user simply enters a password to unlock access to your store. The same process takes affect when you make specific categories private.
