Use Encryption to protect embedded ipushpull pages

If the data in your embedded ipushpull pages is private, you can use ipushpull encryption to make sure only the right people can see it. Visitors to your site will have to enter a password to unlock the data. This article explains how.

You don't need to create individual user accounts to use encrypted pages. You create public pages then encrypt the content before pushing it to ipushpull, then send the password to your privileged visitors so they can unlock the data locally.

If you'd rather create individual accounts for each of your users, you can also use ipushpull access control to protect pages. See this article for more details.
