FSM: Disable Password Protection


Blogs that have multiple authors may want to completely disable authors or contributors from being able to
password protect a post.

This plugin will completely remove the “Password Protect this post” from the writing screen so users are not
even given the option.


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload fsm-disable-pass.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. That’s it! You’re done and ready to keep posts password-free!


What if I want to enable passwords for a post?

If you want to enable passwords for a single post, you will need to disable this plugin.
