HTTP Authentication

HTTP Authentication

  • Apply HTTP Authentication
  • Choose between Basic and other types
  • Protect your site quickly

The HTTP Authentication plugin works simple but adequate. Once published, every visitor to your Joomla! site is asked for an username and password through a HTTP Authentication popup. The Joomla! frontend is only accessible when HTTP Authentication is granted (by using the regular Joomla! login-system).
