    I have created a form that requires a persons social security number and would like to use the feature on this thread but for some reason it is not working. Is there a reason why it is not working or is there another way to go about accomplishing this security feature? Thank you!

    You should add the following custom CSS codes:

    input#input_32 {

        -webkit-text-security: disc;

    }

    Please note that in some cases, we do not allow asking this type of sensitive information in the form. I would suggest checking our terms of use for more details.

    Thank you for your response. I have entered the CSS code, changed the input number to the correct field where I would like to see the changes and save changes, but it does not seem to be working. I believe I am entering the CSS correctly. Not sure why it is not working. The field that I would like to see the changes is 22, so I am entering the following code.... is this correct?

    input#input_22 {

        -webkit-text-security: disc;

    }

    If you wouldn't mind letting us know the form you are working on, we will be happy to have a look.  If the field ID is input_22 then that code should be correct.

    I checked your form and the code is working as expected:

    Is this not the case on your end?

    No... It is not working on my preview of form or in the live version located at the below link. I am using Firefox.

    It seems this no longer works in FireFox.  The only way to make this work in FireFox as far as I can tell would be to use the full source code of the form and insert a script in the page to automatically change the field type:
