    Hello. Thanks for posting your inquiry here on the forum.

    Unfortunately, there is no password feature yet on JotForm during form access. However, this can still be done by using a "Form Collapse" field that you will put at the top.

    Make the "Status" as "Open" and the "Visibility" as "Hidden".


    Then create a condition to show the Form collapse field based on a password on the textbox.

    When it shows the Form Collapse field, it will also show all the fields that are at the bottom of it.


    Please refer to this user guide on How to Show or Hide Multiple Fields Based on A Single Condition Entry

    Note: Having password textboxes or taking in password data using JotForm is against our Terms of Use. However, this situation should be an exception. Though you should not use the word "password" on your forms. That is why I used "User Code" instead to prevent of being auto suspended by the JotForm system.

    If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask or kindly open up a new thread for another inquiry. Thank you
