    How can I create a secure, password required link to my form for my website?

    Asked by cindyzach on September 16, 2014 at 02:35 PM

    How can I create a secure, password required link to my form for my website. I don't want just anyone to be able to open it.

    I wish to create a password protected link to my form when I embed it on my webpage. How do I do this?

    Do you mean to let user to enter the password first before they can open the form, right? And the password field is in the form? If yes, you can add a textbox field to your form that would serve as your password box, but I would advise using another term instead of "password".  This term (password) will be filtered and there's a chance that our phishing filter will auto-suspend your account due to phishing reasons.

    Now, you can use our conditional logic to predefine a password to the form. If the password match, they will be able to proceed and fill the form.

    For example: http://www.jotformpro.com/form/42586381653967. Enter "1" without quotes in the authentication box. You will then see the Pagebreak to proceed to the next field.

    The conditional logic is simply this:
