Any reason a website is password only?

What comes to mind specifically is Sanctuary AI. They’re a publicly traded company from my understanding. So unless they’re working on some extensive changes, it doesn’t make sense there would be a password only mode, with no obvious way to sign up.

Giving the benefit of the doubt, to me this just seems like a move toward lack of transparency to me.

Did they ever mention a timeline for when the website would be public again?
