    Once a URL to a form is created, anyone can go to that URL and fill out and submit the form at the URL?

    Asked by RCinSTP on December 01, 2014 at 11:26 AM

    Thank you, I will use your method.  Just to be sure I understand, I am correct that once a URL to a form is created, anyone can go to that URL and fill out and submit the form at the URL?  

    For example, an automated bot type of software could auto-fill the form with bogus data and submit the form hundreds of times.  Is that correct?  Is there some way to restrict who has access to my form, besides the password method you provided?

    Hi,

    That's right but that doesn't mean bots can easily penetrates into the form. Jotform has its own spammer check system so I don't think bots can easily submit that huge amount. If you want additional protection with bots, you can add captcha to your form. Captcha is under Quick Tools.

    You can restrict users by IP or browser session. It's called unique submission, check this guide. https://www.jotform.com/help/64-What-does-Unique-Submission-Mean?

    Hope this helps.
