HTML password protect web page

The ability to password protect web page s is one of the most often used features. The password - encrypted html documents are secured against unauthorized viewing. Nobody can see the protected content without providing the correct html password - only the authorised users can do this.

After you password protect HTML files, you can put them everywhere without any additional security measures - on your web site, on a shared network folder or a corporate intranet, on CD's and DVD's, you can compile html help files (.chm) from them etc. The password encrypted html source code will look as a bunch of garbage characters if viewed in a text editor such as Notepad.

Main HTML password protection features:

- very strong web page html password encryption - the algorithm used ensures that the protection can not be broken by using any currently known method (brute force attacks, different cryptanalysis techniques etc) within reasonable time limits. A details about the algorithm used and the password encryption strength you can read in the program help file.

The algorithm used to password encrypt html files is very different from what other programs of this sort use (please see the help file for more information). Today there is a really big number of similar programs available all over the Web - but most of them use very weak algorithms which can be cracked in minutes even by not so experienced users.

- user friendly - you may password protect web site or individual files with a few clicks. Almost all additional encryption options can be used (with a few exceptions described in the help file).

- visitor-friendly - the visitors of your site have to enter the password only once - the first time they open any of the encrypted files. For the rest of the protected files, they will not be prompted for it.
Of course this feature is optional and you may not use it, but if you encrypt a large number of files, it will likely be very inconvenient for the visitors of your website to enter the password for each new file they want to see.

- no special software is needed - just a javascript enabled browser.
Usually to see some password protected content, you must have the same software product used to encrypt it. This is a big problem since most people usually don't know how to work with this sort of programs and where to find them. Also almost all other high-end encryption programs are expensive or a subject of different export restrictions.

- customize your HTML password protect web page - the content the visitors will see before entering their passwords can be fully customized. By modifying the protection template, you can customize any aspect of the page layout - colours, background image, use custom style sheets etc.
How to modify the template is explained in details in the Help.

Please be careful! If you forget your password, there is absolutely no way to access the secured content - even we can't restore it. We receive such requests quite often, but unfortunately we can't do anything to help you. A good advice is to use phrases that are easy to remember, but hard to guess by others, as your html password.
Most people use really simple and very easy to guess passwords, like their own name or date of birdth, mate name, pet name etc. This is a real security risk. There is no sense to password protect website if anyone can deduce your password - in such case it can be easily cracked.
