How to add extra security to your Member Pages in Wix

Why you should add extra security to your Member Pages

There are two main reasons to add extra security to your Member Pages:

  1. If some tech-savvy person wants to get around your page protection without becoming a member, they can disable Javascript in their browser which will prevent the page protection popup from appearing. However, if your page has extra security, the person will simply be looking at a white page which obviously isn't super useful for them. :)
  2. Most people don't want their Member Pages indexed by search engines (like Google). The best way to prevent indexing is by adding extra security to your Member Page which automatically sends a strong "do not index" signal to Google and other search engines. This does not necessarily work 100% of the time since search engines can choose to ignore the signal, but that very rarely happens.

When a visitor goes to a page with extra security, they will still see its contents for a second or so before the page protection popup appears.

For members of yours with access to the Member Page, they will not see it whited out.
