Requiring passwords on public Proof share links
Litmus Proof is designed to streamline the process of getting feedback and approvals from stakeholders on your email campaigns. One of the easiest ways to share a Proof with your stakeholders is to create a public share link. To minimize friction in the review process, reviewers do not have to enter a password to leave feedback or approve a Proof from a public share link. Instead, they must only enter their email address in order to identify themselves and associate their comments to a user account.
While the default mode of interacting with public Proof links offers convenience and minimizes friction, we understand some customers will want to password-protect their public links. For these customers, Litmus offers an account-level setting to require passwords on public Proof share links.
Enabling the setting to require passwords on public Proof share links
Note: To require passwords on your public Proof share links, you must have Account Holder access to your Litmus account. If you are not the Account Holder, please reach out to your Account Holder. Admin users can find their Account Holder from the Users & groups page.
To require passwords on your public Proof share links, first navigate to the Password & session settings of your account-level settings area (Settings > Your Subaccounts > Security > Password & session). Scroll down to find the Password-protected Proofs setting and check the box to Require passwords on public Proof share links.
With this setting enabled, users will have to sign up or log in before they can leave comments or approve a Proof from a public share link. Remember that regardless of whether you require passwords or not, users with access to the share link will only be able to access the Proof and not any other part of your Litmus account.
Note: even when passwords are required to comment or approve, the public sharing link allows anyone with the link to view the Proof so share it only with people you trust. Simply use the switch to turn on the public link and copy and paste the link where you want to share it. If you are concerned about making your Proof public, use the Invite Users tab instead to directly invite users via unique invitation links.
