Flipbooks Online Update: Password Protection is Here!

post date

Great news! With the latest update to our online platform you can now password protect your Flipbooks. This means that your publications will be secure online and only specified readers will have access to your content. Enable one password for all of your viewers to use or assign usernames and password specific to each of your viewers.

Simply sign into Flipbooks Online to see this brand-new feature in action!

How to password protect your Flipbooks

Adding a single password to your document for all your viewers to use is incredibly simple. Just sign into your Flipbooks Online account, open the editor by clicking edit on the publication you would like to make private, and enter your password under the advanced section as seen in the image below. Finally, click publish to save your changes.

Now when one of your readers open your Flipbook they will be prompted for the password before gaining access to the document. When the password is entered correctly they can begin browsing its contents right away! In addition, each of your readers will only be prompted for the password once as their login details will be cached through their browser.

If you would like to assign individual usernames and password specific to each of your viewers then you can take advantage of the User Login feature. Flipbooks Online now allows you to implement a secure login on your Flipbooks where entered login credentials are checked against your own database. That way, if user details change on your system this will automatically be reflected for the end user when they read one of your Flipbooks.

Furthermore, if you would like complete control over the distribution of your documents remember to disable the print, share, and download features from the features panel when publishing your Flipbooks. Get in touch with us today if you have any questions.
