    You can set up conditions where all of the fields (except the password field) are hidden until the correct password is entered. However, any user with a basic understanding of how web pages work can check the source code for the password. Other than this method, there is no way to directly password protect JotForm forms.

    To illustrate how easy it is to defeat the method I mentioned, test this form. It looks secure enough and will only display the other fields if the correct password is entered. However, simply viewing the source of the page will reveal that password. (There are actually four instances of the password in the source. You can't miss it!)
