If you have purchased the password protection add-on, you can protect your content so that it can only be watched by viewers who have been given the password for the broadcast or channel. You are able to distribute this password to your intended audience many different ways.

Note: When using this feature on a smart tv app (Apple TV, Roku), it will block the viewer from the content, but does not allow a way for them to enter a password. Instead, they will see a message telling them that this broadcast is password-protected, so it cannot be viewed within this app.

Configuring the password for all broadcasts on your account:

Log on to dashboard.boxcast.com

Click on the Settings page, Click on Preferences and click on edit for Privacy and Security.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the password protection of my broadcasts carry over to simulcasts? No. BoxCast's password protection is only applicable on BoxCast players, like your boxcast.tv links and embedded players. The feature does not carry over to simulcast destinations like YouTube, Facebook, etc.
