    I would like to password protect a form.

    However if I use a short text entry it is visible when typing and stored in the computers cache, whats the best solution ?

    Unfortunately, there's no surefire method which will work in all browsers to disable auto completion of form fields. 

    But, I have performed some tests and can suggest to create an additional form to check the password. The idea is the following:

    1. To create a form which consists of Keypad widget.

    Unfortunately, I have not found the way to capture entered PIN right on the same form, but it works when pre populating to the next form on submit.

    2. To set a pre-populated URL of a second form as a Thank you page.

    3. To check the key, which is captured at a hidden Short Text Entry, on the second form.

    You can also place a link to the first form, so it could be clicked to get back.

    Here is how it works, the password is 7373:

    Hope this helps, but if you need further assistance, just let us know. 

    P.S. Please note that if one of your form fields will contain a word "password", the account will be autosuspended. Such forms are considered as phishing.
