    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.

    Yes, you can add a sort of password in your form with the help of conditions.

    First you hide all your fields then add the condition in which when a user enters a password and the value is correct, it will show the fields.
