Passwords for public boards
Inviting visitors to your board using a public link is a great option for instant, one-time or short term collaboration with users outside of your team or company - even non-Miro users can access public boards.
When sharing public Miro boards you can add an extra layer of security by setting a password.

How to add password protection to a board

- The password will be copied to your clipboard
Setting a password on a board shared by link
✏️ Enterprise plan Admins can set mandatory passwords for all boards within the subscription.
How password protection works for users
After receiving and opening the board link, visitors are prompted to enter the password.
Once they enter the password they’ll have full access to your board. They’ll only need to reenter the password every 72 hours.
If users have to log in more frequently, it’s possible the company Miro admin has enabled Idle Session Timeout for added security.
Change the password for a public board
You can change or disable the board password at any time by clicking Edit password in the sharing settings.
Changing the password will immediately revoke access for all board visitors, even if they’re currently on the board.
Editing a board password in the share settings
✏️ Users who can share a link to a password-protected board are not able to change the password unless they’re a board owner or co-owner.
Disabling a public link
You can stop sharing a public board at any time, however it doesn't automatically reset the password for your board. Visitors will still be able to access the board with the same password unless you change the password in your sharing settings.
I forgot the password for my board
If you forget the password you can easily change your board password in the share settings.
✏️ The password protection feature for mobile is in our backlog.
