    We do not allow the use of the word "Password" to your field, we have an anti-Phishing system and a manual checking that scans all our forms, when a form violates our "Terms of Use", see the section under "Phishing", our system autosuspends the account and disables all the forms.

    However I would recommend you to rename the field to a more acceptable name, for instance "Enter Code", must be a name field that does not make reference to any sensitive information as the word Password.

    Follow the steps on how to achieve this:

    1. Add to your form a text box. Setup Conditions by clicking the icon.

    2. The conditions wizard screen will pop up, then select  Show / Hide a form field:

    3. Include the following conditions: 

    If the Enter Code field is equal to 1234 then show all the form fields including the Submit button. If you would prefer, you may hide those fields as well.

    I hope this helps to solve the issue.

    Found out the hard way. I was trying to do the very same thing that jorgegallardo is doing,

    but my account got suspended.

    Now, I am not able to log on. I clicked the Contact Us and explained my case, but have not heard back and unable to use jotform at the moment.
