    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:

    Dacast Video Security - Password Protected Streams - Live Channel Setup
    From there, navigate to the SECURITY tab as circled below:
    Dacast Video Security - Password Protected Streams - Live Channel Security
    Click on the padlock icon to edit the security settings and set your desired stream password:
    Dacast Video Security - Password Protected Streams - Security Settings
    The following window will appear. Click “Edit”:
    Dacast Video Security - Password Protected Streams - Edit Security Settings
    Now, enter your private stream password in this field. Please note that your password cannot exceed 10 characters:
    Dacast Video Security - Password Protected Streams - Protection Settings
    Click “Save” at the bottom part. If your password is accepted, a popup will appear to confirm this:
    Dacast Video Security - Password Protected Streams - Protection Settings Confirm
    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.
