Once you have created a Password Package you can add 1 or multiple Password Groups to the Password Package. Each Password Group can have different variables such as Expiry Periods as well as amount of allowed views and if it's valid for 1 or more videos. If you want to check out some Password Restriction Demos and extra information please visit our Password Protection information page.

As addition to the Simple Password that we cover in another guide, you can password protect your video or playlists by linking them to a Password Package.  Inside of a Password Package you can add new or existing Password Group(s) (containers).  Then inside of the Password Group(s) you can add the actual passwords (and set expiry period, total allowed uses) , which you can provide to your to individual viewers so they can unlock the videos that are linked to the Password Package that contains the Password Group in each the actual password is stored.

Example:

  • You have created a Password Package called “Company on-boarding videos
  • You have added 2 Password Groups:  “Sales Department” and  “Marking Department
  • Then you have randomly generated 10 passwords for each department (Password Group)
  • You have then given those 20 passwords to each employee in those 2 departments.
  • You have linked your whole playlist by going to Playlist Setting > Access Control > Password Protection > “Company on-boarding videos” package in order to password protect all existing and new videos that will be added to this playlist.
  • Now only those 20 people can unlock the whole playlist and watch any video inside of it. 

Note that those 20 people cannot watch other playlists that are linked to different Password Package that does not contain the 2 password groups in which the given passwords are located.

  • When new employee starts or leaves, you can simply add new password or remove existing from the password group and this grant or deny the access immediately.

SINGLE OR MULTIPLE GROUPS

You could simply add 1 Password Group for example: 

  • Password Group 1: Unlimited access. 

Or you could create multiple tickets with different parameters for example:

  • Password Group 2: 7 Days access to 1 video
