    I want to protect the access of my form, not only the submission.

    More simple is guess, to add a first page, use a blank field and set condition to activate the next page. (Field equal Password)

    But im facing some problems :

    * I want the password active only one time (User can fill the form one time with the password)

    * Ideally, I want to set multiple available passwords (One for each users)

    Any clues ?

    Unfortunately, it's not possible to set an authentication on forms.

    While you can set a single pass information in order to show the fields, it will be difficult for creating multiple combinations. In addition, our filter restricts this which may cause your form to be suspended, since JotForm can only collect information and by nature, not for the purpose of processing authentication.

    Also, it's not safe to do this on the form as opening the source code will reveal the information on the header of the HTML code.

    So I suggest that you have your form placed in a secure page like a Content Management System (CMS), where you can allow only authenticated users to view the form. By this, you will need to have your own website, and your own webhost, and install a CMS there like Drupal, or Wordpress.
