Dacast is a secure streaming solution equipped with the tools you need to password protect your live streaming content. We’ve put together a few simple steps on how to secure your live streams with password protection.
Adding Password Protection to Live Streams
Click on the Edit Button (which appears as a pencil icon) on your live channel: From there, navigate to the SECURITY tab as circled below: Click on the padlock icon to edit the security settings and set your desired stream password: The following window will appear. Click “Edit”: Now, enter your private stream password in this field. Please note that your password cannot exceed 10 characters: Click “Save” at the bottom part. If your password is accepted, a popup will appear to confirm this: Please note that this is the password your viewers must now enter to gain access to the stream. Make sure your viewers have this information as soon as you update your stream password settings. You can return to this tab to change the password later if needed. For VODs, however, you have to add a password to each video content to make it password-protected. Note: This feature does not currently work with packages or on Facebook embeds.
