Keeping sensitive information secure is crucial when working online, whether it's personal data, financial information or confidential business documents. Notion is a popular productivity tool that can help businesses organize and store their data efficiently.
However, to keep their data secure, users should consider password-protecting their Notion pages - and in this blog post, we'll cover everything you need to know about doing just that.
But what if you want to share a Notion page publicly?
Well, Notion provides you with the ability to share a public link to any of your Notion pages.
For example, let’s say you have a Design Agency and your website is called:
When you share a document from Notion, the link will look something like (ugly) this:
There are two problems with this link
- Anyone on the internet can access the page
- The page is published on Notion’s website (as opposed to your own website)
Luckily Sotion solves both these problems. Let’s see how…
Custom Domain for your Notion Page
First of all, to control access to your Notion page, you need to publish your Notion page to your own domain.
Instead on the Notion link we have above, your Notion content will now be available at:
This has two immediate benefits:
- Because your Notion page is published at your own custom domain, you now have full control over who can access your content in the Notion page
- Another major benefit is that the content in your Notion page now becomes part of your website. Visitors are no longer taken to the Notion website to view your page. This has major benefits for your brand and keeping visitors on your site.
- Bonus: You can even create your whole website in Notion and publish to your own custom domain.

Password Protection for Notion Pages
Now that your Notion page is linked to your own domain you can easily add password protection to control who can access the content that you publish.
This is very easy to do with Sotion:
Step 1: Log in to your Sotion Dashboard
Step 2: Go to “Page Settings” → “Membership Options”, then select the “Password Protection” option
Step 3: Click “Save Changes”. Your site is not protected with the default password.
Step 4: To change the default password, go to “Branding”, and enter the password you want to use.
Step 4: Click “Save Changes”
And that’s it! The Notion content on your website is now protected with a password that you specified.
When someone visits your Notion Password Protected page they will first have to enter the password before they can access the content.
You have full control over who you give the password to, and you can change the password at any time.
Are you ready to change your Notion content?
