Password-protecting your board


By default, your upload page board is publicly visible. You can make it private by adding a password. Then you can share the password with anyone you want to have access, including team members and select clients.

How to password-protect your page

Select “Page settings” from your dashboard.

File Request Pro - Your page settings

Under the tab “Advanced Settings” you will find

File Request Pro - Thank you email

Now only people with whom you’ve shared the password can access your File Request Pro upload page.

Signing in to your private page using an HTTP GET parameter

Normally, your users access a private upload page by typing in the shared password.

Instead of giving the password to your users, you can instead allow them to access your private upload page using a URL that contains the password.

The URL to use is: https://filerequestpro.com/up/your-private-page?password=yourpassword

Once the password has been confirmed, the user will be redirected to a URL that does not contain the password.

Important security note: The auto-signin link contains your password in clear text form. You’ll need to decide whether it is acceptable in your circumstances for people with access to the link to be able to see the clear text password.
