    Can I block an individual's IP address from submitting the form?

    If so, how can it be done?

    Sorry but it is not possible. However, you can configure your form to accept only 1 submission per user. Click the link below to learn more about that.

    Unique Submissions

    Hope this helps.

    I'd like to second this feature idea, and maybe expand on it a bit.  It would be nice if you could limit the submissions to be from a certain ip address range.  That way you could limit your submissions to a certain company or institution that has a fixed range of ips, and eliminate spammers.

    This would be a great addition...


    Can you advise if Jotform will be pursing the above feature or if they have made any advances on this since?
