Beware of Escape Key on Squarespace

Recommended Posts

Just trying to lay some crumbs for the next person...

So there is a feature in Squarespace that if enabled will send anyone that ever visits your site to the login page if they hit the "esc" escape key while on your site.

I finally found out this was the root issue (I had no idea it even existed) and if you need to disable this *feature* it is super simple. Watch this video for more help: https://www.charlotteohara.ca/blog/disable-escape-key-login-squarespace-tutorial

If you created your website before 30 August 2020, the escape key login shortcut will have been enabled by default. To check or change the setting navigate to Settings > Advanced

The feature is disabled by default on all Squarespace websites created after this date.
