Beware: An edit password will not protect everything on a readable page that is hidden by (:if false:). This is because an unauthorized user can use (:include:) on another page with the lines= option to circumvent your conditional.

If you need something to be well protected, put it on a separate read protected page. If you need to see it sometimes on an unprotected page depending on a conditional, you can include it from the protected  page - it will only be visible to users who can read both pages.
