Allow password-protected hosting, and hosting from a non-Adobe server
These two features would go a LONG way to making Publish Online a viable format for professional publishing. I'm sure many clients would pay an extra fee (nothing outrageous) for a self-hosted solution, if that would be necessary for Adobe to commit resources to make this happen.
We have started to investigate how we can enable password protection for Publish Online links. Will share more updates soon
Is this idea under consideration? Adobe XD added Password-protected prototypes. It seems like almost the exact feature that I believed is being requested here for InDesign. I currently have two active clients who have rejected using Adobe InDesign published documents due to the lack of this exact feature. I'd appreciate it if you could let me know if this is even under consideration.

Whatever the advantages to the service, my organisation will not use Publish Online until we can host on our own servers or one maintained by one of our contracted suppliers.
Password protection would be a good start!
