We have a video tutorial on how to How to Add a Password to your ARK: Survival Evolved Server:

Setting a server password on your ARK Server requires users to enter the password before they can join the server. By default, all users can join without a password.

You can set a server password with the following steps:

  1. On the server control panel, navigate to Files > Config Files.
  2. Select ARK Server Settings

  3. Enter your desired password in the Server Password field.

  4. Press Save at the bottom of the page and Restart your server for the change to take effect.

Once your server restarts, all users will be required to enter the password you set before they can join the server.
