    I've created a hidden field on a form, but when previewing or sending the link for someone to test the form, it is visible. 

    Thanks, Robin

    I have checked both the forms in your account and the last edited form 90565879561169. However, I was not able to find the mentioned field on any of the form. Please provide us with the form ID/URL so that we can check it further and assist you.

    Thanks!

    I can see the field you mentioned is related to a condition, this means that if the condition is triggered the field will be hidden, while the condition is not triggered the field will be shown:

    If you want the field to be hidden for everyone except you, then you need to remove the field from the condition, also, we do recommend to fix the errors on the conditions, they are displayed with red text.
