    I am not sure I really understand fully what your question was about on Facebook form.

    But can you please reiterate what you meant by "How to gate my form" in FB?

    Did you perhaps meant "How to Add Form to your Facebook page?"

    We will wait for your updated response.

    I like to protect the Form with a username and password. Instead of creating a database with usernames and passwords. I like users to login with Facebook and the form will be accessible.

    Thank you for the clarification.

    Unfortunately, you cannot really add username/password component on the form to have some method of protection on it.

    BUT just to let you know also, if you actually add the form in your Facebook page, you can set its privacy to ONLY ALLOW Facebook authenticated users to access/view the form.

    What I meant is, the potential users must have FB account and must be logged in on their FB account before they can access your Facebook form.

    Wouldn't that be enough protection on your Facebook form already?

    Hope this help. Inform us if you require further assistance.
