    You can create a kind of access mechanism to the form using conditional logic feature.

    User guide: -Smart-Forms-Using-Conditional-Logic

    BUT let me warn you ahead, that we do not recommend this method when needing to password protect the form. Because anyone with a basic knowledge on how to view the web page source or the form source on the browser, can easily find the 'password' text used to gain access.

    Because the form source are just plain text. 

    Example conditional logic to have access code

    http://form.jotformpro.com/form/30893662455967?  the access is "testcode"

     

    If the form is embedded on a website, what we recommend is to put the access protection on the website instead. Like, add a login on your website or provide access code before users can even see the form.

    Hope this help. Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.
