How to Make a WordPress Site Private

If you’re using WordPress to create a website, then you know that it has a feature that will allow you to make a post or page private. However, there are a few tricks you should know to get the most out of this privacy feature. Let’s explore these tips and get started. First, be sure that you have activated the private pages or posts option. This will make your content visible in a private environment, but only those with access to the WordPress administrator’s account can view it.

You might not want to make your website public immediately after you launch it. This might be the case if your website is new. If so, there’s no way to announce the URL and entice visitors to visit your site. Using the privacy toggle will make it harder for people to find your site’s URL. However, you’ll need to be certain that your site will be private before you begin to promote it.

Secondly, you should know that you can make the entire WordPress site private by using the My Private Site plugin. If you’d like your site to be completely private, you can install the My Private Site plugin and then add the child theme to the parent theme. You can then remove this plugin before going live. This will prevent anyone from viewing your site in the future. However, if you’re worried about your privacy, you should make sure to back up your website before making it public.
