    I would like the ability to password protect forms (i.e. people can only view and/or submit the form if they have the correct password). This is a feature available on Jotform?

     

    Thanks

    UPDATE (August 20, 2019): Password protection feature is available now. 

    Here is how it works:

    1. Open the Form Builder and find the Enable Password Protection option under the Settings tab.

    2. If you select this option, you should set a password for the form. If you don't set any password, the Enable Password Protection option will be unselected.

    3. When you set a password for the form, a person who wants to open the form will see this page:

    4. If the person enters the incorrect password, s/he cannot open the form and will see this warning:

    5. If the person enters the correct password, s/he can open the form and submit it. However, if you (form owner) change the password after s/he opened the form, s/he cannot submit the form and will see this warning:

    6. You can reset the password by clicking on the RESET PASSWORD button or unchecking the Enable Password Protection option.

    A workaround would be hiding them entire form under a form collapse, please check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/297-Show-or-Hide-multiple-fields-at-once-using-form-collapse-tool 

    Makes sure not to label the field with the "Password" word, because our phishing detector system may suspend the form. Try using different labels such as "Access Key" or similar.

    Let us know if you need more help.

    Thank you BDavid.
    That might explain my other question I sent in. My account is autosuspended. I may have added a field with the word password in it while testing. Can I get unblocked so I can fix that?
