    Please be noted that we do NOT have any built in feature to password protect any form but it is still possible to achieve your requirement. You can take advantage of our "Conditions" feature to show / hide form fields based on the input of any text box. Here are the steps your should follow:

    1. Add a "Form Collapse" field at the start and end of your form. You can set the "Visibility" of the form collapse as "Hidden" and the "Status" as "Open". Please check the screenshot below:

    2. Before the first form collapse, add a "Text Box" field where user can input the password. Please be noted that you should not use "Password" label in your form. You can use any other text like "Code", "key", "authorization". We have automated anti-phishing system which scans all forms and mark them with probability of being used for phishing activities.

    3. You can add condition in your form to check the input text of the text box. If the password matches, you can show the entire form collapse field which will in turn display all the form fields. Please check the screenshot below:

    Please take a look at the following demo form :  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/42291563960963? Feel free to clone this form for a closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  https://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.

    Enhanced solution is add a PIN to create a code - password and Browser cannot remember it :-)

    Fiz um formulário teste, seguindo essas orientações e para minha surpresa, ao sair da conta e tentar retornar, tive minha conta suspensa.
    O que faço?
    Tenho vários outros formulários em uso e que preciso fazer revisões. Fiquei preocupado agora.

    Agradeço qualquer orientação.

    Hi jotform, Jill here.

    How do I get the PIN solution as described earlier in this discussion by stekubi on May 28 2015.

    Hopefully such a solution is available.
