Password protection form redirects to 404 page when password field is blank

I’ve created a page and password protected it. When the correct password is entered, the user is taken to the correct page. When the wrong password is entered, the error content is displayed as expected.

However, when the password field is blank and the form is submitted, I’m taken to /.wf_auth, which is a 404.

Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? I found several posts from 6-7 years ago with the same behavior stating it was a bug that has been fixed, but nothing else.

Live site with password protected page is here:

Can you make it a required field?

I would love to, but I have no idea how to do that. I searched and couldn’t find any way to do it.

Try selecting it and check the settings.
Although it’s not a standard Webflow form, it may still have that option.

If not, you can do it with custom code. You’ll need to share your readonly designer link if you have more questions, I can’t see your designer setup without it.

This problem is currently an issue on 4 sites I’ve built that require password protection. I’ve submitted tickets multiple times and every time they say they are aware of the issue, but don’t have a time on when it will be fixed.

I have simmilar problem. After submitted my password page, I am redirected to 404 page.
I also put /.wf_auth as an action.
Could somebody has a solution?

I have the same issue.
Webflow disabled it for reason security.
