Password Manager Table

    Would Jotform be a good platform to build a Password Manager?

    I have 2 other people that I would share the table or a grid listing (password protected) with.

    Is Jotform secure enough to do this? Or do I need to go look for a Password Manager that I can share with 2 other people?

    Hi there,

    There is an option to password protect your Form, but I'm afraid that there is no option to password protect the Jotform Tables.
    However, the Jotform Tables can only be accessed through your account unless it is shared with another person using the Share Tables feature.
    The person trying to access the Jotform Tables of your form would need to access the Jotform Tables Private Share link and will be required to log in to a Jotform account.
    When the Access Setting of your Jotform Tables is set as Private and someone tries to access it using the Public share link, that person will be asked to request access first.
    You will receive an email with their request and they will not be able to access your form's Jotform Tables without you granting them access first.

    Hope this information helps.
    Let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Thank you.

    What do you think about using the Grid Listing from the Reports section and setting a password for that?

    Which one is more secure in your opinion sharing the table and setting it up as private or the Grid Listing?

    The Grid Listing report needs a password to open it. The Jotform Tables need to be invited via email to open the Jotform Tables. If you want the password route, I recommend the Grid Listing report.

    The Jotform Tables have many sharing options than the Grid Listing Report that you can just open and view. Here are the options for the Jotform Tables:


    By the way, are you going to collect passwords? If yes, we do not allow that here in Jotform. For more information, you can check our terms of use:

    I am storing my own passwords as a "Password Manager" as I listed above in my first post. I am not collecting other people's passwords. Is this still against the terms?

    As we do not allow collection of passwords, your account will most likely get suspended by the system if you'll put password in your account. Perhaps you might consider putting the password in a different platform and just redirect your users to that platform in your form.

    Let us know if you have any other concerns. 

    Thank you.
