    Password access

    Asked by thebidcalendar on December 08, 2015 at 12:49 PM

    I want to use a form as a log in to access a page on my site.


    Can I enter letters in a blank, hide them and when someone wants to access the redirected page they have to enter the same letters.

    Also, could the password be tied to the email address?


    It would be set up like this

    Enter your email: urmail@urcarrier.com 

    Enter Pasword: _______________

    In the thank you setting, I will have them redirected to the page I want them to go to.

    We do not allow forms to act as a log in page, this is against our terms of use. Please check our terms page under the "Phishing" section. Forms asking for log in credentials like username and password mimics a phishing page, we are very strict on this and our anti-Phishing system will most likely suspend your account and disable the form.

    I hope you understand.

    Ok, gotcha and respect it.

    How about this.

    I put a form on my site and ask for the viewer to insert their name and email address to proceed.

    Yes, you can ask the user to enter that data, since you are not asking for password, something that is not allowed by JotForm as my colleague explained above, but you can ask the data like name and email address in your form and it will not be cataloged as a phishing form.

    Let us know if you need more help, we will be glad to assist you.
