This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Why is my page password protected when I didn't add it?

Why is my site is now requiring a password for those that want to see it. It hasn't been that way prior to today. It is the same password as I need to log in, but I'd rather not have to have my parents have access. They need to be able to see it without a password.

I am experiencing the same problem ever since I added a password protected page. I have deleted it from each page and have deducted that the password migrates to whatever page I exit from. I have an unlisted page I am using for exiting. This practice will eliminate that problem with your published site.

Homestead doesn't have a solution. I don't know if everyone using a password protected page is experiencing this same problem. It took me a couple days to decipher the pattern. It's not random. It's necessary to use an exit page that will eliminate the password from interrupting your visitor's experience. You want all of your pages to be accessible. Occasionally I'll time out and the page pops up with a password required. I know now to log in, delete the password and exit using my dummy page. This solution will work until Homestead finds the bug.
