Feature Update: Password Protect Your Blog

We are happy to announce that blog administrators can now password protect their blogs.

This allows you to assign a single password to control access to your blog, offering a level of privacy that we didn’t have previously.

This is great news for sites that contain private content that is meant to be shared with select visitors from outside the University.

The new option has been added to our Site Visibility and Privacy instruction page.
