A password protected gallery will show up in your gallery list. Viewers will not be able to access the gallery unless they have the passkey.
A non-public gallery will not show up on your gallery list. Viewers will need to know the URL of a non-public gallery or image in order to view it.
A gallery can be made both non-public and password protected. Viewers will need to know both the URL of the gallery and the password for the gallery in order to view it.

In order to do so, go to the passkey page.
From here, you can select your locked gallery image. You have three options:
1. use the gallery's representative image
2. use the PBase default (padlock)
3. use your own image.
If you choose to use your own image, enter the image id # (image must be hosted on PBase).
After making your changes, click the "update locked image" button.
