    Password Protect Form

    Asked by bsocc on May 07, 2014 at 07:14 AM


    I have read all posts to forum regarding password protecting forms and url pages. I do not see suggested "power tools" option, or "password" (or any label used on collapse form edited text) on drop down selections in conditons set up window.

    I would like to enable this feature if possible. Could you provide me with accurate instructions on doing this?

    Hello bsocc,

    Unfortunately, we do not have such features. Please be noted that JotForm cannot be used as a regular authentication forms. It cannot authenticate the password from the database. The password field which you are trying to find is already removed for security reasons.

    If you do not want to authenticate the user's credential from database or any external source, there is one possibility to achieve your requirement. You can take advantage of our "Condition" feature. Please be noted that if someone checks the form's source code on browser, they will be able to see the password. Idea is to move your entire form inside a "Form Collapse" field. You can have a text box where one can input the texts and if it matches with your condition, you can show the form collapse which in turn will display your form. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/196-How-to-Hide-or-Show-Multiple-Fields-at-Once-Based-On-a-Single-Conditional-Entry

    Please be noted that you should not use "Password" label in your form. You can use any other text like "Code", "key", "authorization". We have automated anti-phishing system which scans all forms and mark them with probability of being used for phishing activities. It's just a matter of time and our anti-phishing filter will disable your form and suspend your account.

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
