New Development Stores on Shopify Require Password Protection

Changelog update from Monday, August 17, 2020
Posted by Galen King in Partners

Beginning August 17, 2020, all new development stores on Shopify will be password protected. Partners will not be able to disable the password page unless they transfer the store to a merchant or select a plan, meaning visitors will need a password to view the store. This does not affect existing development stores. App and theme developers can continue to use development stores for listings without changing settings.
