    I would love to use the password feature and have been looking for it for ages. Sorry to see it has been removed but what about us normal people who would like to have it? Can we protect it from phishers maybe?

    UPDATE (August 20, 2019): Password protection feature is available now. 

    Here is how it works:

    1. Open the Form Builder and find the Enable Password Protection option under the Settings tab.

    2. If you select this option, you should set a password for the form. If you don't set any password, the Enable Password Protection option will be unselected.

    3. When you set a password for the form, a person who wants to open the form will see this page:

    4. If the person enters the incorrect password, s/he cannot open the form and will see this warning:

    5. If the person enters the correct password, s/he can open the form and submit it. However, if you (form owner) change the password after s/he opened the form, s/he cannot submit the form and will see this warning:

    The demo looks nice.

     

    Where did the page in the user guide go. I can't see anything opening it.

     

    Would be so great to have that feature back.

     

    Keep up the good work!
