    I have a form that asks for the user's Social Security Number (SSN). Can this field be treated as a password, so that it displays as bullets or asterisks when the user enters it? If possible, I would like it that way when I view the submitted form via the e-mail or Get PDF option, too. The only way I want to see it is on the Excel or CSV download. But the main thing I am looking for is to obfuscate the SSN when the user enteres it.

    Is this possible? Or is there an existing way to accomplish this?

    Well, I posted this question, then I found the answer--Password Box under Power Tools!

    Let me modify the question. Is there a way in a Jotform form to compare two entries to make sure they are identical? If the text of the entry is hidden, I would have a second field for the user to re-enter the data. Can Jotform see if these two entries match, and if not, prompt the user to re-enter the information?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Unfortunately, we do not have a condition or validation type that allows you to compare two fields.

    It is only possible to compare two fields by adjusting form source code, you may find an example in the following thread.
