Password protection and privacy options

Have sensitive or secretive information in your guideline? A private guideline is for you.

The Public/Private function is meant to give designers the option of adding a lock-screen to their guideline, by adding a password that needs to be entered before the viewers can gain access. Alternatively, SSO(Single Sign On) can also be added by Bespoke users to live brands. The viewers do not need an account—as long as they have the password, they will be able to enter. A couple of scenarios where this can be a neat addition to your guideline could be:

  • When you have confidential information and you'd like to have everything hidden from the public eye.

  • In situations where you are doing more extensive changes to the brand guideline, and would like to keep it "offline" for a certain amount of time while you work on it.

  • When you don't want the guideline indexed by search engines.

How to set it up:

Step 1

Go to Account -> Access control -> Provider. Click on Add a provider and select Custom password. Give your password a name in the first field, then enter and re-enter the password in the remaining two fields. You can add multiple passwords to use on different brands, so we recommend including the brand name when naming your password.

Step 2

Once you've created a password, navigate to the brand settings of the brand you want to password-protect. You will find Access control under Authentication in the brand settings.

Step 3

Click on Add a provider and select the password you want to use from the list. Once you've selected the password, make sure the On/Off toggle is set to "On". If you want to remove the password protection, simply toggle the Access control to "Off".

Step 4

You can customize the lock screen in the Page customization settings under Authentication in the brand settings.
