    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.
