Galleries: Privacy & security

Unlisted Galleries

Unlisted galleries aren't visible on your SmugMug homepage and aren't included in search engines. You can give your friends a direct link to find your gallery, like:
http://smugmug.com/gallery/2504559_f3ta9.

Similar to an unlisted phone number, there is a small (one in more-than-a-million) chance someone could just type in the right digits and stumble across your gallery. So, you may want to secure sensitive photos with a password.

Tip: Use SmugIslands to keep even public galleries or your entire site out of search engines.

Tell me how to make a gallery unlisted.

Password-protected Galleries

Password-protected galleries require visitors to enter a password to see the photos inside. The galleries won't show up in SmugMug's search. Google can find them, but can't look inside.

If you choose a featured photo, the protected gallery graphic will be replaced with one of your thumbnail-sized photos.

Tell me how to password-protect a gallery.

Tip: You can secure your entire SmugMug site with a password.

Give me more info on unlisted and password-protected galleries.
