    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.

    Hi,

    You can use conditions to password protect your form. To learn how it is done, please visit this thread for instructions and an example form that demonstrates that functionality.

    Hope you find that information useful. If there's anything else you require assistance with, please let us know. Thank you.
