To control your publication's availability, go to Settings > Access Control.
In this section of YUDU Publisher, you can make your publication login-protected, change the selling options within your custom branded apps or make your digital publication hidden from SEO indexing.
The first option you are presented with is a tickable box called "Subscription required".
If you enable this setting and click "Submit" at the bottom of the page, the login box will appear when you generate a new preview.
To store login details so a user does not need to repeatedly log in, please also tick "Remember me when offline".
You can also specify a number of unprotected pages at the start and/or end of your digital publication, both for the standard digital edition and the PhoneView (Reflowable Mode) equivalent, if the latter is available.

The next batch of settings only apply if you have a custom branded YUDU application. The Selling Options for iOS and Android allow you to specifiy whether this particular publication is free to access for everyone (Free edition), only available as part of a YUDU Publisher subscription by logging into the app (Subscription only) or available for sale within the app as an in-app purchase (For Sale).
Please Note: If you choose "For Sale" and sell your publication as an in-app purchase, it can also be released to a YUDU subscription and accessed via login. These two options are not mutually exclusive. In this case, you would set the Selling Option as "For Sale".

The final batch of settings on this page relate to the privacy of your digital publication. You can enable Content Encryption and the Privacy Options will prevent your digital publication from appearing in public searches on search engines.

Further information re: Content Encryption:
- If encryption is enabled, it is no longer possible to set unprotected pages at the start and at the end of the edition.
- Search-engine-indexable plain text is not encrypted, so clients should use the Privacy Options on the same page to configure their editions as they desire.
- The note clipping feature in the iOS reader is disabled for encrypted editions.
