The BP Simple Private is a FREE plugin that allows you to hide your content from non-logged in users.
You can choose to hide Pages, Posts, Custom Post Types, and BuddyPress content such as Activity, Groups, Members, Member Profile Pages, etc.
The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.
