Over the many years that we have been converting websites into apps, occasionally the need for password-protecting an app has come up. With password-protection I don’t mean your typical login feature that you have on your website (that will of course work out of the box in your app), but rather a password that needs to be entered before the app can be used. This password is the same for everyone, so the most common use cases for this feature are the following:
Private apps intended for a specific group of people, for example employees of your company
You can enable a password for your app in your dashboard. Since this feature is only included in the enterprise plan, you might not be able to access that page until you upgrade your plan. So here’s a screenshot of the password settings:
As you can see it’s very simple - tick the checkbox, enter your desired password and you’re done. Now let’s see how it will look when someone opens the app.
When viewed in your app, this screen will of course use the colors you configured and your app’s icon, not the webtoapp.design logo.
There’s not much more to say about the password protection aside from mentioning these convenience features:
Evaluate and improve your website's speed and mobile friendliness to make your website-based app faster and more user friendly.

Hi, I'm Jan! I created webtoapp.design in 2019 while studying computer science in university. A lot has changed since then - not only have I graduated, but it's also no longer just me running webtoapp.design. We've grown to a global, fully remote team and have gathered lots of experience around app development and app publishing. We've created and published hundreds of apps in the app stores, where they've been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times.
