Low-level password protection

August 4, 2019

QT:{{”
You set up two pages (e.g., page.html and protectpage.html). page.html has the javascript code snippet within the tags. protectpage.html has the protected information. If someone enters the correct password — ‘letmein’ in the example — the protected page opens in a new browser window.

Of course, the password is identifiable by viewing page source. Also, a webcrawling bot will probably index or scrape protectpage.html at some point.

Anything more sophisticated is challenging.
