    Hello. Thanks for posting your inquiry here on JotForm.

    Unfortunately, JotForm has no password protect feature yet.

    However, you may want to consider this alternative method:

    1. Create a textbox for the password or code


    2. Add a Form Collapse field after the code.

    Set the "Visibility" to "Hidden"
    Set the "Status" to "Open"


    3. Go to "Setup & Embed" and click "Conditions" to access the "Conditions Wizard"

    Choose "Shoe/Hide a form field" and click Next


    4. Use this condition. When the user types "Awx113!" as the code it will immediately show the Form-Collapse field along any field below it. Thus, simulates the hiding of all form items until the code is correct.


    If you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to reach us again. Kindly open up a new thread if your inquiry is a different and unrelated one. Thank you

    I don't have the "Form- Collapse" option when I get to step 4 in your process.  See screenshot.

    Hello AlysonSword,

    In my colleagues’ example, you see the "Form-Collapse" name in the condition (step 4) because he has input the form collapse text as "Form-Collapse". He did that your easier understanding but you are free to change the text of "Form-Collapse" to any other text. The same text will be visible in your condition dropdown. See the screenshot below:

    I have cloned your form and did the required changes. Please check it here:

    If this works as expected, feel free to clone this form in your account. Here is a guide which should help you in form cloning:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions. We are happy to help.

    Thank you!

    Hello I have same problem.

    I tried to follow the instructions,

    however when I get to the last part I cannot edit any text in the feild "click to edit this text" does nothing I cannot add "Form-Collapse" as an option in that box.


    I think I got it sorted, I had to create different parameters to remove all the individual parts of the form I do not want seen without the code.


    thanx guys :)

    Hi JotForm Developer,

    I know this thread is old but it was very helpful! I do have one question, however.

    Once I set up a password, my instinct tells me to press enter to submit the password, however this causes the form to think it's being submitted, and therefore every field on the form turns red and gives an error message. Is there a way to add a "submit" button at the end of the password field?
