While some events are designed to be open and want as many people to download and access their apps as possible, others need privacy and content protection. Here's a summary of how you can restrict access to specific events in your "container app" or make the entire app accessible only to authorized users:
- Restrict access to the entire app - you can upload a list of authorized users in the "People" section (just the e-mails are enough). For an extra layer of security, you have the option to set up email verification to confirm their identity. Here are the links to learn more about the benefits of pre-created profiles and how to upload attendees in a multi-event app.
- Limit access to specific events - you can limit the ability to join specifics events within your multi-event app container. This can be done with a unique "event code" that users need to enter only once, or by using access keys that can be assigned to a dedicated group of attendees.
- Web App Password Protection - you can optionally lock access to your WebApp by setting up password protection. Note that you'll need to share the password with attendees in an external communication.
When an attendee who's email hasn't been added to a list of profiles is trying to access the app (or he is trying to join an event without having the event code or access key) he gets a prompt with an email of a person he can contact to help him gain access to the app/event. By default, this is the email associated with your Attendify account, but it can be changed at any time in the Access Management Settings after the app is submitted.
Please keep in mind that you always have the option of leaving your app completely open and allowing users to create their own profiles and join your various events. We give you the option of securing your app, but doing so is entirely up to you and is not right for every event.
