How to bypass Shopify Password Online Store

How to bypass Shopify Password Online Store

All newly created Shopify development stores are password protected. It means that visitors will have to enter a storefront password to access the site.

The password can be set from Shopify Admin -> Left Menu -> Online Store -> Preferences -> Password protection:

Unfortunately, ‘Enable password’ checkbox cannot be unchecked and all new visitors of the site will have to enter a storefront password.

The above could be inconvenient for people who visit an theme preview online store.

So, I spend some time how to resolve that and I’ve found a solution:

Instead of redirecting visitors directly to shopify store, I’ve created a static HTML page

with the following code:

<form method="post" action="" id="login_form" accept-charset="UTF-8" class="storefront-password-form dt-custom-button" target="_blank">

<input type="hidden" name="form_type" value="storefront_password">
<input type="hidden" name="utf8" value="?">

<div class="input-group password__input-group">
   <input type="password" name="password" id="Password" value="YOUR_STOREFRONT_PASSWORD" class="input-group__field input--content-color" placeholder="Your password" style="display: none">
  <span class="input-group__btn"><button type="submit" name="commit" class="btn btn--narrow elementor-button ">View Demo</button></span></div></form>

Replace, ‘’ with your actual shopify store URL, and ‘YOUR_STOREFRONT_PASSWORD’ with your storefront password. Then when people, click on ‘View Demo’ it will submit the form with storefront password and they will see the site.
