When I turn on password protection on my site the open graph image no longer shows. I added to open graph image to the password protection page as well as the homepage but for some reason it does not seem to show up. When I turn off password protection it seems to work fine.
Any information on how this issue can be resolved would be greatly appreciated

Password protection would be rather useless if a search engine could walk in and download your page content, so it makes sense that your password-protected pages would be inaccessible.

Chances are you may have forgotten to publish the page, or perhaps where you’re “testing” your og:image has already cached the old version of the page, and that hasn’t been updated yet.
