How can I restrict access to my app?


App Security is a feature that is either part of your package already or can be added at an additional charge. Check with your Account Manager to learn more about your package. App security includes two layers of protection for restricting access.

Event App Protection 

Protect your app with a passcode of your choosing, which attendees will be required to enter to gain access to your app.

Registered Users Only

Everyone will be prompted to log in before they gain access to the app, and only emails associated with registered attendees in the Attendees module will be accepted.

Enabling App Security

Both security layers can be activated in the App Security module under General Settings in your Content Manager. To activate them both, switch both toggles to YES. There, you will also find a setting that allows you to encrypt all the data on your app, which guards against the interception and malevolent use of information passing through the app.


HTTPS is a protocol for secure network communication.  Within the App Security menu of your app you will have the option to enable for disable this.  We highly recommend that you leave this enabled at all time to ensure all data that passes through your app is properly secured.



If you have opted to feature your app in an app store, the administrators of that store will be given open access to the app as part of the approval process, and screenshots of the app will be featured on the app's preview page in each store. While App Security closes your app to the public, each app store will have access to the data in the app and each app store has its own policies governing the ways (and extent to which) it protects your data.
