Google won't index password protected pages. If you password protect your pages, only visitors who know the password will be able to view the content. Search engine robots won't be able to access the pages. Password protected pages can have a negative influence on the user experience so you should thoroughly test this.

pages that are password-protected will not be accessible to the search engines. Search engine robots typically can't log in to crawl pages...

It isn't possible, Google or other search engines would not crawl password protected pages. Only web pages which are available public would be crawled and indexed.
