Can I Hide My Shopify Store?

Yes, you can hide your Shopify store.

There are a variety of methods for doing so, depending on your level of technical skills and the amount of time you are willing to dedicate.

One of the simplest ways to hide your Shopify store is password protection.

Applying a password means your store is no longer publicly accessible.

Another option to hide your Shopify store is to use a separate, private web server.

This is a more advanced approach, but it will allow you to keep your store from public view.

You'll need to configure your server correctly and add the necessary security measures in order to protect your store.

Also, you'll need to install and configure a shopify client such as Magento, WooCommerce, or Bigcommerce in order to make sure that the store is accessible from the server.

Whichever approach you choose, make sure to consider the level of technical skill required and the time investment you are willing to make in order to secure your Shopify store.
