    The simple protection refers to the "Password Protect" workaround. Just to clarify, we do not have password protection feature and it is not recommended to use a 'password' keyword on forms since we have an active anti-phishing filter. However, it is possible to create something similar using Show/Hide Field conditional logic


    Suppose you already created your form. What you need to do is add another (textbox) field and a Form Collapse before the first field (or header).

    Then, create a condition that if the textbox field value is equal to your chosen keyword or access code it will show the Form Collapse you added which will also show the rest of the form.

    Note: The Form Collapse can be set as hidden (visibility) and its status to always open).

    Please note that this is not a real password protection but only a workaround. The access code can be found in a page source by advanced users.

    I hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again anytime.

    Thank you.
