    Im creating a talent agency website where people can log onto the site and apply to become a model actor etc. The website as of right now is just a beta version with a few forms, but eventually there will be a "log in" for the models. In the form I have a text field that says username and another one that says password, i will just create the username and password later if they are selected to become a model. I would like for the password field to be populated with ********* instead of the actual text. What is the best way to accomplish this?

    Unfortunately, that feature is not possible with Jotform. They no longer support the password field type. It's also discussed in this post asking a similar question: http://www.jotform.com/answers/284533-how-i-can-change-type-of-password-from-text-to-password-in-jotform

    "The reason why we no longer support password field is that most users will take this for phishing purposes. We understand that not all users will apply it for those purposes. But in general, and in order to be compliance with internet authorities, we decided not to support it any longer.

    You might decide to move to any other competitor (Wufoo, Gravity Forms, Forms123, etc) if you really need this feature working ."

    As explained above , we no longer support login forms as I explained in this thread.

    Please refrain from doing that. Otherwise, you might get suspended by our automated system or our Reviewers Team sooner or later.

    @marron_afable Thank you for your explanation.
