    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.

    You can consider following solution.

     

    Add a “Short Text Entery” element from basic section. You will use for  password.  

    Add a “Section Collapse” element in “Basic” section sub-labeled “Page Elements”. Then you should modify it’s properties as “Section Visibility” -> Visible and Button Visibility as Hidden. Add rest of your form under this element. In my example I named it “Form Collapse”.

     

    Last part is to form a if statement in your Settings. To do that, first go to your Setting option. In “Conditions” part click “Show/Hide Field” section. Then modify your if statement as following :

     

    In my example form’s screenshots are bellow.

     

    Before password :  

    After password :



    Here is the link for my Sample Form feel free to examine it too.

     

    Please remember not to use word Password since it will create a phishing problem for your form and it will be detected by our tools.

    In addition to that, you can also create a private form that allows the form to be filled out only by those with a special link. Please check this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/306-Allow-Jotform-to-Be-Filled-out-Only-by-Those-with-a-Special-Link

    I hope that helps. If you have questions, please contact us again here in the Support Forum.
