How does the App work?
The app is easy to use and doesn't require any coding skills. It is designed to create different types of lockdowns based on the login status, password, tags, location, orders, etc.
If location-based locks are enabled, the app determines the visitor's location from GeoIP and grants/forbids access to the content, depending on the settings.
In the case of password-based locks, the pages are locked on the browser side. In addition, we add no index tags to tell Google to exclude such pages from the index and prevent search engines from indexing the content.
And if you use customer-based locks, the content is locked on the server side, so search engines won't be able to index it.
However, in any case, if Google already indexes the content, it would only disappear after a few days or even weeks after Google will re-indexed locked pages and detect the 'Noindex' directive.
EasyLockdown may access the following personal information depending on the lockdown rules created: blog commenter e-mail addresses, IP addresses, browser user agents, customer names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and physical addresses.
Despite having access to all that content, our app never stores even a fragment of sensitive information in our databases or backups. Instead, we keep only the conditions set in the app admin (lockdown settings), which are checked using the liquid code on the store. Therefore, neither IDs, tags, nor the location of specific users is stored in our database or logs. And, of course, the data isn't exported to any physical media.
