Password protecting a kiosk website & supported authentication methods
Since your web server is what controls who has access to your files, Kiosk Pro isn't able to password protect files on a remote server. The app does support the following types of server-side authentication methods:
- HTTP Basic
- HTTP Digest
Once you have this type of password protection set up, you can embed the username and password you set directly into the URL in the format 'http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org' and set this as the homepage or a link within your content. Make sure you include the "http" or "https" scheme at the beginning of the URL.
If you are unable to embed the username/password in the link as shown above or each visitor needs to enter separate credentials, make sure you have the Browser Engine = WKWebView (located in Advanced Settings), which allows you to enter this type of credential directly through a pop-up.
