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.
If you are unable to embed the username/password in the link as shown above or each visitor needs to enter separate credentials, you will need to use Browser Engine > WKWebView, which allows you to enter this type of credential directly through a pop-up.
If you are using UIWebView and embedding the username/password in the URL, you will need to make sure the app's Advanced > Cache Source setting is set to 'Native UIWebView' or 'Never' as this authentication is incompatible with the custom http:// protocols used in 'Kiosk Pro Cache' mode.
