    Thanks for contacting us. You can do that by using the form's source code. Please refer to this user guide on How to get your form's source code. After getting the source code you need to paste on a text editor and modify specific HTML codes on the Matrix.

    Find the textboxes of the Matrix and add a placeholder= on them this should place a hint on the textbox. Save the HTML file and host it on your server.


    However, I can see that this form collects usernames and passwords though the intention is probably good, we can not guarantee that your account will not be autosuspended by our anti-phising system as this breaches our Terms of Use. I advise that you rephrase the username and password to prevent suspensions. Thank you
