    Hello vasupport,

    If I understand your question correctly, you want to hide the input text just like a password field. Is that correct?

    Please be noted that we do not support password field anymore. You can inject the following custom css code in your form to hide the input text but it will only work on webkit based browsers like chrome:


    -webkit-text-security: disc;

    text-security: disc;


    The highlighted text needs to be replace with your field id. The following guide should help you on how to find the field id:  http://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-Field-IDs-Names 

    The following guide should help you on how to inject custom css code in form:  http://www.jotform.com/help/117-How-to-Inject-Custom-CSS-Codes 

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
