    I would like to post a link to one of my forms on the public side of our website. There will be some "confidential information" in the form. I was wondering if I can password protect the form and limit access to it. 

    Unfortunately I cannot add the form to the private side of the website, so I am hoping I can put a password on the form.

     

    Thank you!!!

    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:

    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:

    You can add an access code field in your form and set up a condition that will hide the fields if the inputted value in the access code field is incorrect\. Here is a sample form that you can check: https://form.jotformpro.com/70934195088970. You can clone the form to have a closer look on the setup. To clone a form you can check this article: How to Clone an Existing Form from a URL.
