    Asked by Sarah on February 28, 2011 at 03:18 PM

    Do you have a way to set up/create username/passwords on a jot form?...what about having it log that customer into a secure area just for their account?

    Hi Sarah

    I'm afraid that there is no way to password protect forms on JotForm. You should probably have a password protected area on your site (by possibly using .htaccess) and keep your forms there.

    If you want to redirect the user somewhere after they submit the form then you'll need to post the form data to your own custom thank-you page and handle it on your own website.  Here is a post on how to achieve that:
