    Thanks for asking.

    To have the form available only for yourself, there are a few options at your disposal that come readily to mind (but there may be others)

    1. Create a password protected web page and place the form there

    2. Insert a password field into the form and create conditions to only show the other fields when the correct password is entered. This method is not as reliable as the first to prevent others from using the form. It all depends on how important it is to you that no one else use the form.

    3. Disable the form and only enable it when you want to use it. After making your submission, disable it again. Just as secure as the first option but also quite tedious!

    Would you like additional information on any of the methods? We'd be happy to help as best as we can.

    Can u send me more information on the first method. Basically what it is is we repair phones and write now we use hand written forms. I want my employees to have access to the form when they take in a phone that needs repaired. That way the submissions would come directly to my email

    Hi there,

    The password protected form is a very straight forward approach to limit the use and access of the form to those who knows the password. For the instructions on how to set this up please visit the following thread:


    Should you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to ask.

    Thanks for using JotForm!

    You could use something like this:




    Then on the page which contains the form you want to protect put this at the very top before your embedded form content.

    <?php require('access.php'); ?>

    Just a note you save that access.php to a location on your php enabled webserver.
