How to Restrict Access to Your App to Authenticated Users Only

Let’s say you have a route that you want to restrict to logged-in users; maybe you have a /profile page that lets your users fill in some information about themselves, but it wouldn’t work if they weren’t logged in. Open /client/app/profile/profile.js , and add authenticate: true to the options passed to $routeProvider.when like so:

      .when('/profile', {
        templateUrl: 'app/profile/profile.html',
        controller: 'ProfileCtrl',
        authenticate: true // restrict to authenticated users

This way, if the user isn’t authenticated when they try to access the /profile page, they’ll be redirected to your login screen to authenticate before continuing to their profile page.
