Is it okay to use an ACF field to store a password for a protected area of a page?

Question

I was wondering how secure it is to use a simple ACF text field on a page to store a password for a certain area of content on the page? So the user would have to enter in a password in an input field and I would check the password against that ACF field and then load the content if correct (via Ajax). Is that secure to just have that password stored in the database in plain text?
