Logged in users have full access.
If a user who did not logged in your site, he can open home page, but when he try to view any other buddypress content, he will be redirected to optionally URL which can be setting in admin panel.
If you want more pages opened to non members users, you can enter page URLs in “Opened Page URLs” option, you can add any urls (enter one URL per line please) which opened to public, guest can view content of these opened post / pages / stores… and so on, when they view these opened pages, they will not be redirected to register page, else they will be redirect to your pages which you setting in admin area, for example, register page or store page or membership payment page… and so on.

In admin area, In “BP Components” option panel, you will find we have listed all buddypress standard buddypress components in a checkbox list, you can choose which components will open to guest user, or which components will only opened to logged in users, just a little mouse clicks, you can checked any buddypress standard components to open to non member users, and disallow non member users to touch other buddypress standard component, when non member users try to open any pages related with protected buddypress standard components, they will be redirected to redirect page which you setting in admin area, for example, you can setting non member users be redirect to your register page or your members payment page.
For example, you can open Buddypress Members Component / pages to non member users, but if they want to click members profile pages, they will be redirect your register page or payment page, or you can hidden your Buddypress Activity pages, so all of your buddypress activities can only be opened after they register and logged in your site.

Options to only protect your buddypress pages
Some users requested to only protect buddypress pages, and open all other pages related wordpress section to non member users. In this version, we realized this feature, just click the option “All Other Sections On Your Site Will Be Opened to Guest”, then other sections, for example page, post, store… and so on will be opened to non member users, at the same time, when they want to view your buddypress sections, they will be redirect to your redirect page which setting in admin area.
Enable page level protect
If you enabled page level protect option, when you edit page / post / product / video… and so on, you will find “Members only for this page?” meta box at the right top of the wordpress standard editor. If you checked “Allow everyone to access the page” checkbox in this meta box, the post will be opened to all guest users, by this way, you do not need enter page URLs to Opened Pages Panel always.
Login and Logout auto redirect based on user roles
you can setting after login redirect URLs and after logout URLs based on user roles. For example, you can setting users which have subscriber role redirect to their activity page after they logged in, and let users who have woocommerce customer role redirected to their shop account page,or redirect editors to their messages page… and so on.
This feature is very easy to use, please logged in your admin area, open BP Members Only menu, click redirect setting sub menu item, you can find we have listed all roles automatically, just select roles which you want to setting, select redirect method from 3 redirect method:
1: Default, this means do nothing and just follow buddypress and wordpress default behaviour.
2: Referer, this means after logged in, user will be redirect to the same page before login
3: Redirect to Certain URL, you can enter any page URL in your domain, users which have related roles will be redirected to this URL after they logged in.
