InstaVR FAQ: How do I protect contents with Password?
Can we password protect so the video cant be played unless you know the password?
It’s almost ready. Please make contact with firstname.lastname@example.org to have further update.
For the password protection, there are several variations to do this.
Per app: All contents are protected. Only 1 password can unlock all contents. You have to share the password on AppStore submission.
Per content: Some contents are not protected, but some contents are protected. Password are required to unlock the contents.
Per content per user: Contents accessibility is different per user. This would be suitable for Netflix or Amazon Prime style service. User A can access all, but user B cannot access all. Or user C can access some because user C purchased these contents.
2) Input Type
Full Text: In the pure VR system like Oculus Rift or HTC VIVE, full-text based input is one of the challenges, so relatively simple passcodes such as number only might be used.
QR Code: Easy to share. Scan to go.
Managed: User doesn’t input content passcode. User requires sign-in to the VR app. Each user’s accessibility is managed by app. User never enters passcode per content or app. This is suitable for complicated scope like per content per user.
Permanent: Passcode will not changed. The passcode will be stored locally. User doesn’t have to input it anymore.
One-time: Passcode will be changed from time to time. User needs to input password every time. This would be good for subscription type businesses.
