Websites with special characters can not be password protected


So I was facing this problem ever since password protection was introduced. I have some international clients and some languages use special characters as “é” or “ô”. Now for some websites the password protection was not possible and always gave the error "The request signature we calculated does not match the signature you provided. Check your key and signing method."

Today I discovered it was because of the special characters! When I delete the special character it works… Strange! Bug?

Hey @rowan thanks for reporting this bug - we saw it on our logs and was trying to find out where they were coming from. Are the special characters in the HTML? If you could provide us the name of the site that’d be helpful.

Also, to get our attention about these issues sooner, please email future bug reports to support[at]
