    To password protect my form do I need to create a user account for each user that will access the form?


    I want to password protect the form but I want to avoid creatin user accounts.


    Please advise

    UPDATE: Effective October 2018 the Sub-User feature has been discontinued and is no longer available for creating new sub-users. If you had been using this feature previously, you're grandfathered. 


     If you would like to have additional users added to your account, please check out JotForm Enterprise.

    A subsuser is someone that can access your account and view submissions or edit the form or forms, according to the level of permission set by you:


    If I understood right you wish your forms to be accessed/filled in only after insert a password.

    If this is the case, I need to inform you that our terms don't allow login/password fields. As an option you can instead create a field with a condition, that if a code is inserted, the form will show up. But be advised that this code might be accessed through source code inspection.

    Please go to conditions>Show/Hide a form field:

    You can test the test form here:


    Let us know please if you need more assistance.
