    Unfortunately it is not possible to create login forms on Jotform. This is considered phishing and results in the suspension of the account and removal of the guilty fields. You can see our terms for more details:

    But if you need a basic solution to hide the form from the general public, you can try a simple workaround.

    Add a text-box field. Please do not use keywords as password/security code as this can activate our phishing filter and cause the temporary suspension of your account.

    Add 2 form collapses: one before all the form content and other before the submit button. Define them as hidden and with open status:

    Now add a condition that if this field is equal to a specific word then show "form collapse name":

    This is not a password and it offers very little protection as this code can be seen on the form's source code, but it can help avoiding spammers.

    You can test and clone the demo form, the code is "mycode":
