Shopify provides a one-stop solution for users who want to start an online e-commerce website or online store. For this, users have several tools and Shopify themes available on the Shopify website which they access by creating a Shopify account. The tools allow users to construct online shops and websites for selling everything from food to clothing. A few popular eCommerce websites created by using Shopify themes are Pipcorn, Joco Cups, and Allbirds. Also, there are Shopify partners who provide details about how to work with these themes and tools.
Currently, there are 10,000+ Shopify stores and Shopify websites and such a large number attracts a lot of cyber-attacks. Hackers mainly target the Shopify store admin login to steal and manipulate data. These issues have given rise to major security concerns.
There has been a significant increase in Shopify apps, especially since they launched the Shopify partner program. Every new store created using any Shopify themes and tools has a Shopify store admin dashboard. This dashboard needs to be secured due to the ongoing danger of hackers always planning phishing or brute-force attacks. We accomplished this security using a Reverse Proxy Server by IP address whitelisting.
Shopify IP Restriction, which grants access to only the whitelisted IP address ranges, to access your Shopify store admin dashboard. You can add an entire range of IPs and custom IP addresses to block IPs or grant access to IPs for your Shopify dashboard (also known as Shopify IP Whitelist).
Shopify Device Restriction, which restricts access to the Shopify store admin dashboard login, to only registered devices. Access is permitted for a list of devices using their unique Device IDs and access to any other device will be denied.
Shopify Country Restriction, which will block users from accessing the Shopify store admin dashboard login depending upon their countries of access. This reduces the danger of hackers attempting to log in to your Shopify admin dashboard (also known as Shopify Country Blocking).
These 3 approaches of Reverse Proxy provide security measures that are easy to implement and reliable. Shopify accounts and Shopify admin dashboard login are secure from cyber attacks and the user’s website and store with the data in it are completely safe along with the configured Shopify staff permissions (also known as Shopify Role Based Access Control).
Reverse proxy will block access to your Shopify admin login from users who are not on the company network.
You can set custom user restrictions rules to secure individual user group Shopify login as per admin needs.
Using IP Restriction, you can also set only specific users to access your Shopify store admin dashboard (Shopify IP whitelist).
Using Device Restriction, you can prevent access to unauthorized devices from trying to access your Shopify store admin dashboard (Shopify Device Restrictions).
Using Country Restriction, you can restrict Shopify store admin dashboard access based on the countries, geopolitical locations, and the time zones (Shopify Country Blocking).
You can also set up custom user group role-based access control for your Shopify admin login.
Shopify users can configure IP Restrictions, (Shopify IP Whitelist) so that users can access and log into the Shopify store admin dashboard when they are using a whitelisted network IPs. This way an organization can allow the company to access the Shopify store admin dashboard only when the user is on the company network (also known as Shopify IP Whitelist).
Shopify users can configure Device Restrictions, so that users can access and log into the Shopify store admin dashboard when they are using a whitelisted and authorized device. This way, the users can log into the Shopify store admin dashboard using the company-authorized device (Shopify Device Restrictions).
Shopify users can also configure Country Restrictions, (Shopify country blocking or Shopify Country blacklisting), where the users will only be able to access the Shopify admin dashboard if they are in an authorized geographical location. This way, the organization can allow users to work from a location where they’re working from comfortable location and easily reachable.
If users are on using their home wifi network, bus station wifi, airport wifi, or even cafe wifi, they will not be able to access the Shopify store admin dashboard for security purposes (since they are not on the Shopify whitelisted IPs).
In case the users try to log in with a cyber cafe computer, or their personal laptop or smartphone, an error message will be thrown that the device is not authorized to access the Shopify admin login.
If users are working from a region, where they cannot be reached and there might be a possibility of unauthorized access, Country Restrictions can be set to prevent access to the Shopify admin login.
