    Is there a way to password protect a jotform?

    Asked by Kevin McFarlane on September 25, 2014 at 08:43 AM

    I would like to do a membership vote with a jotform.  Is there a way to make people type in a predetermined number to access a form?  The thought would be to use their last name as the username and their membership number as the password.  Can this be done? 

     

    Thanks in advance

    We don't have that built in feature that will allow forms to enter username and password. Please be noted that Jotform doesn't allow such forms that contains username and password as some other users use their form to phish for information.

    We have an automated phishing tool that will detect your form if it contains text like password, username etc. and your forms might be suspended. What you can do is use a conditional logic to hide an show fields, this will act as your form protection before the user sees what's in your form.

    You view this thread http://www.jotform.com/answers/21374-How-can-I-password-protect-a-form to see how it works. The name "password" is used in that sample but doesn't mean that you will use then same text. Our phishing tool didn't detect the form because my colleague who created the form is an Admin.
