SocialGO works great as a private website for your friends, colleagues or customers.
When you set a password, only those who know it can access your site. The site will not be accessible by search engines or users who do not know the password.
This is a great tool to use if you want to hide your site from the public while you introduce new content or perform maintenance.
To do this, enter the Admin area. Hover over 'Setup' and click 'Privacy'.
Tick the tick box to confirm you want to password protect the site, and then enter a password into the text box area and click 'Save'. Your site will now be password protected and only people who have the password will be able to access it.
