    Unfortunately, we don't have an option to disable the enter key. 

    However, it is possible to do this via your jotform's source code. Here's a workaround provided by one of our supporters on this thread: How-to-stop-form-submitting-when-enter-is-pressed 

    Another alternative way, add a CAPTCHA to your form. Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/205-How-to-Add-a-CAPTCHA-field

    You can also enable the Required to one of your field. See the image below:

    Hope that helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.
