I am trying to: set a password protect using the built-in WP password function for a page that is on the secondary language domain

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: N/A

I expected to see:

Instead, I got: On save the page just reverts back to public setting with no password. The primary page works fine.

Thank you for reaching out to WPML Support!

As a first step, please try the following:
- Go to WPML -> Settings
- Scroll down to the Posts and pages synchronization section and deselect the options called Synchronize private flag and Synchronize password for password protected posts
- Click the Save button

This should allow you to set Page and Post privacy and password protection independently for translated items.

Please let us know if this solves your issue, otherwise I will be happy to assist you further.
