How to set up a private area of a website in Drupal 8?

P: 1
Here's what I need;
- A set of pages on the public facing website that are password protected (ie: not someone logging into the Drupal 8 backend admin area)
- I need a login page with just a password box
- I need public users to be able to enter the password and access the entire private section (we're calling it the members portal)
- I need those users to be able to access all the pages in the members portal by entering the password only once

Here's what I've currently got;
- A website that was half built when I started working at the organisation (It's a Drupal 8 website)
- A login page with just a password box
- A set of pages that are in the members portal (not book pages)
- A website with two menus (one that is active when a public user first lands on the website and one that is active after the password is entered)
- A module called Protected Pages that is currently making the users have to login every time they click on a link in the menu in the members portal

How do I set up this private section so that public users can just enter the password once and get access to all the pages in the members portal?
