Making status pages private

Making a status page private with our pin-protection feature is a great way to share uptime reports and insights with your team members and colleagues whilst protecting statistics from customers, we're calling this pin-protection and here's how to protect your status page by making it private with a pin:

To find it, follow the steps below:

  1. Log in to your account
  2. Tap your name in the top right (you might need to open the menu first if on a mobile)
  3. Tap the Status Pages link (that's the one with the explanation mark)
  4. Head to one of your status pages, or create one
  5. Enable the "Make private" feature
  6. Set a 6-digit access pin which will be required to access the status page

Accessing a pin-protected status page

When someone loads up your protected status page they'll be redirected to a page to enter the 6-digit access pin that you've created, upon successful authentication they'll be able to view the status page for up-to 15 minutes before having to provide the pin again.

If the pin changes during this period they'll need to provide the new pin.

Making a private status page public again

If you wish to make a private status page public again you can simply disable the switch, the person whom is viewing the status page won't need to provide the pin again.
