Access options for custom data

Access options help you adjust what areas of your store can display your custom data on the Storefront.

Activating Storefront access allows you to use the metafield or metaobject for your Storefront in your Online Store 2.0 theme editor, through Liquid, with dynamic sources, or with Custom Storefronts and Hydrogen.
