    Hello, you can use Input Mask to mask your text inputs of Textboxes


    Please be advised that we do not tolerate password boxes. If the purpose of this textbox is used input passwords this will violate our Terms of Use. Input Masks are useful to hide credit card numbers and other sensitive information but can not be used to create login forms or signup forms that needs passwords. Thank you for your cooperation

    Unfortunately that's not possible with Jotform. We no longer support password field type as explained by my colleague.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    That's a shame!  Given that you do have legitimate (paying) customers that have need of the password field, and given that your Input Mask feature does not support special characters, I think I may have to look elsewhere for a solution.

    The reason why we no longer support password field is that most users will take this for phishing purposes. We understand that not all users will apply it for those purposes. But in general, and in order to be compliance with internet authorities, we decided not to support it any longer.

    You might decide to move to any other competitor (Wufoo, Gravity Forms, Forms123, etc) if you really need this feature working . Feel free to ask us for further help if you decide to move. We are always here to help.
