mpd password protection

Good evening forum!

I have updated both of my Volumio installations to the latest 2.03.
I want to protect the mpd control with a password. Previously the following two lines in the mpd.conf did the job
password “password@read,add,control,admin”
default_permissions “read”

in order to connect from mpc client from another host I had to supply the password, while the Web GUI accesss was working fine as well, allowing for play/stop/add/remove etc actions.
While it is not the case in the 2.031 version.

Any advice on where can I set the password in the GUI so that I can control the password protected mpd daemon?

thanks in advance.
