Well, in my opinion it is not about the password. I noticed that we can hide and unhide pages by means of fulfilling certain precondition. By setting a specific precondition using codes in the first page, I can then expose subsequent hidden pages. This feature is already available in the current JotForm. My concern is, that the submit button also appeared in the first page. As there is specific amount of submission quota per month, according to type of account, I certainly don't want people who are unable to authenticate themselves to press the submission button and drain away my quota. In other words, in addition to the authenticating code/precondition, I also don't want the submit button to appear. Somehow, I did not see that option available in the conditional settings.

This is possible using the conditional rule. Here's what you need to do.
1. Create a blank short text field
2. Create a condition that if the "short text field" is not equals to "xxxx" (your access code), Hide submit button.
You can even set a different access code for each page. Please check my sample form here https://form.jotform.com/80167897222968 to see how it works. Page 1 access code is 1234 and Page 2 is 4567.
Let us know if you have any questions.

Let me be more explicit. When the form is run, this is the first page.
I don't want that green 'submit' button to appear.
I don't see the options appearing in my conditional setting.
I don't get the submit button option, in the drop down list, unlike what you have shown above.

In the previous setting, I have set 'hide' pages for field 2-7 at design time, to show at run time if authentication is correct.
I have followed your example that is to 'show' at design time, and then hide at runtime, only to show these pages if authentication is correct. I still arrived at the same state. "That 'submit button' has a live of his own"

Somehow the answer is within Jotform. I am just puzzled of the various version of Jotform interface in the forum. For me, the submit button did not appear in the hide/show conditional options, but in enable/required field. It has a disable submit option. And that worked for me. This problem considered solved.

I'm glad you were able to figure it out.
The fact is that if you are creating a form in card layout:
You will not be able to conditionally hide Submit button.
But you will be able in the Classic layout:
Hope it helps.

I don't mind the submit button appearing, so long I could disable it.
