dotPhoto enables you to password protect any album or group of albums.  A password-protected album will be hidden from anyone who is invited into your account.

A password used on multiple albums will show ALL those albums PLUS the albums that have NO passwords.  This is a good way of creating sets of albums that you want to share with different groups of people.

If multiple albums have the same password, and you invite someone to see one album, they will be able to see all the albums that share that password.  They will also see all albums that have no password.

To set an Album password:

  1. Click on any album.
  2. Click on the Organize bar on the left.
  3. Click on Album Settings under the Organize bar.
  4. Enter a password.
  5. Click on Save Changes.
