    Hi there,

    Sorry, jotform is not intended to be used like that.  If you have a form which collects passwords then you will trigger our phishing filter. Also, submitting a form would only allow you to redirect the user - so anyone else could get to your document if they knew the address.

    If you want to password protect an area of your website, I recommend using an .htaccess file.  Take a look at this

    Like what Daniel said, Jotform cannot be used as a form of registration/sign-in system. Your account might be flagged for phishing if you insist on doing so.

    As an alternative, I suggest that you read this thread for ways on how to password protect your form. Note that the password/s used on that workaround are set within the conditions inside the form, and not pulled out from a user database.

    Hope you find this post useful.
