Hi @JampotPrint 

 

Great question! Even though your password page is protecting the shop portion of your online store, the website URL and the password landing page are still discoverable. 

 

The activity you are seeing could be from users searching for your store name in a search engine, or they could be bots crawling the website. Regardless, it isn't anything to be concerned about. The domain and landing page exist, which means it can be searched and indexed.
