    Unfortunately, having a password field on forms are prohibited since it would go against our terms. 

    If you would like to have the submitters of your form enter a code first before they can access the remainder of the form, then there is a workaround for that. Below I have created steps on how you can do this.

    First, create the content of the main form.

    Second, add a form collapse before the main form. Set the form collapse status to "open" and its visibility to "hidden". So that it is always open, but it is never shown on the form.

    Third, add the field where users would enter the code to view the entire form. Please be noted that as an alternative field label, instead of using the word "Password", you can try "Code", "Keyword", or something of the like to avoid being suspected of phishing activity by our Anti-Phishing system that will disable your form and your account to automatic suspension.

    Lastly, you need to create a condition through the Form Builder's Condition Wizard. The condition, should state, "If the "Code" field is equal "1234" (sample code), show "View Contact Us" (form collapse)".

    Here's a sample form: https://form.jotform.com/60770883998981
