After numerous requests to make maps more secure other than having a random url, we have added the ability to protect maps with passwords over our secure site: https://www.easymapmaker.com. The secure site no long has the option for public or private maps. Maps will default to private. If you add a password then that is an extra layer of security besides the url. It also forces the use of our secure site to view or edit the map when there is a password. Only our English site has map passwords for now. If you forget your password, you can either change it with the browser (and computer) you used to create the map or through a link sent via email.
As always, get mapping!
