    We are looking to put our application for services on our website but would like to restrict access to it to case managers we work with and not have it open to the public.  Is there a way to password protect a form on Jotform?

    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.

    3. When you set a password for the form, a person who wants to open the form will see this page:

    4. If the person enters the incorrect password, s/he cannot open the form and will see this warning:

    5. If the person enters the correct password, s/he can open the form and submit it. However, if you (form owner) change the password after s/he opened the form, s/he cannot submit the form and will see this warning:

    6. You can reset the password by clicking on the RESET PASSWORD button or unchecking the Enable Password Protection option.

    I can see that you have added a Password field at the beginning of your form however you have not added any conditions. I have cloned your form and added below condition to the form:

    If the password is not equal to Password1, then other fields will be hidden.

    Thank you!  I tried to find a similar question before posting mine but didn't find one until after I asked my question.

    Just to provide you additional information regarding your form. Our phishing detector may detect this form as suspicious due to the "Password" string in the form. We suggest that you rename the password field to something like "Access Code".
