    How to clear the previously entered form field data from browser?

    Asked by esearch on March 19, 2017 at 01:00 PM
    Any, since it cant be done on mozilla. Question will be is it possible to delete the code text after using it, Like the browser will not keep it saved? Because on our case when we keep using it on Mozilla, the code remains, worst is just click one letter connected to code, the whole code suggestion appears. which is not good on code privacy. What if another user 2 use the desktop and he see the other code of user 1?  Can you please recommend a way to delete the code after submit and user need to retype it again every new form? Thank you so much.

    Each browser has its auto fill settings. This is enabled by default so I'm afraid you cannot clear the values unless this feature is turn off in the browser.

    Or, maybe this workaround will work:

    1. Embed the form to your website using our iframe method: https://www.jotform.com/help/148-Getting-the-Form-iFrame-Code

    2. Set the form to redirect to a custom thank you page on your website. You have to create this page.

    The form will not save the data after getting redirected. Lastly, advise the first person that submits the form to close the browser before leaving it to another user.

    I hope that helps. Let us know if you need further assistance.
