How To Protect Your WordPress Form With A
Password (A
Simple Way)
Its common to see different types of forms on
WordPress websites these days. Some are designed
to book an appointment with the company while
the other to report the product's problem with
the company. In both the cases, forms are
visible to all the visitors who visit that
particular website. But have you thought, what
you need to do if you want to limit the access of
2
  • certain forms to certain users? You just have to
    install a form plugin, get an add on, and then
    configure it for your purpose.
  • To be frank, not everyone needs to password
    protect their forms. But if you want that only
    your clients can contact you, a password
    protected form can be your next need. Once you
    have added a password protected form to your
    site, only people who know the password will be
    able to view it. In simple words, when a common
    user visits your site, they will only see the
    password field instead of actual form. And when
    they enter the password and hit submit, the
    whole form will open on their screen.
  • So, in this blog, we are going to tell you how to
    protect your WordPress form with a password. But
    before you dive deeper into the details, I would
    like to draw your attention to our web design Los
    Angeles company that offers ROI-focused IT and
    marketing services. In general, you can contact
    our company SFWP Experts to leverage services
    like WordPress web design, web development,
    website maintenance, online marketing, and many
    more.
  • With that over, its time to look at the full
    details of why you need to protect your
    WordPress form with a password.
  • Why You Need To Password Protect Your WordPress
    Forms (2 Solid Reasons)
  • While there are a number of reasons to password
    protect your forms in WordPress, we tell you
    about the two most important ones
  • You are a professional Wordpress developer or run
    a web design agency. So, you have to create
    different types of websites for your different
    types of clients. Then there comes a time when
    your clients experience a problem in their site
    and they want to talk to you regarding that
    matter. For that you can add a support request
    form to your site and allow only your clients to
    access it with a password.

  • Non-clients wont be able to access that form and
    so you will have limited form entries to deal
    with.
  • In the second case, you may have planned monthly
    or weekly appointments with your clients on Zoom
    or Skype. And you want only your clients to only
    book the appointment through your website. In
    that situation you can lock your appointment
    booking form for non-clients and provide access
    to your clients only. This way a limited number
    of people will only be able to book an
    appointment with you and you will have to meet
    just them.
  • These are the two common situations when you may
    want to password protect your WordPress forms
    and prevent non-clients from reaching out to
    you. Remember, if you dont lock your form with a
    password, you will have to go through a lot of
    form entries one by one and check yourself
    whether or not users have submitted valid
    information.
  • In case you want to design a custom form for your
    site that can only be accessed by your clients
    or members, get in touch with our web design
    company in Los Angeles.
  • How To Password Protect Your WordPress Form With
    WPForms Plugin (The Step-By-Step Guide)
  • WPForms is the high-rated contact form builder
    that is suitable for WordPress websites. This
    plugin allows you to build any kind of form in
    WordPress using its visual drag and drop editor.
    Whats more, it also comes with a special addon
    that allows you to lock your form in certain
    cases. In simple words, it allows you to add
    password protection to your WordPress forms so
    that only a limited number of people can access
    it.
  • Now lets start the process to protect your form
    with a password

Step 1 The first and foremost thing you need to
do is install and activate the WPForms plugin on
your website. Step 2 Once you have done that,
create a form for your website using its drag
and drop form builder feature. Step 3 After you
have created your form, the next thing you need
to do is install the Form Locker addon for your
WPForms plugin. To do that, you need to go to
WPForms gt Addons in your WordPress
dashboard. Here, you need to look for the Form
Locker addon and then install and activate it
once it shows up. Step 4 Head to WPForms gt All
Forms and search for the form that you want to
protect with a password. Then click on the form
name and make the changes that you want to
do. Step 5 Head over Settings gt Form Locker and
find the Form Locker option there. Once you have
got it, go to the first option and checkmark
Enable password protection. Now enter a
password of your choice and also a display
message to show it off to your users. Step 6
Once you have set your password, click on the
Save button at the top of your page and you are
done. Now when someone visits your website and
goes to the form page, they will be able to see
all the content but not the form. This is because
your WordPress form is now hidden for general
users and it will be seen only when your client
will enter the password.

In case you want to give your form page a unique
look to draw the attention of your visitors, get
into conversation with our Los Angeles web design
company now. Now when the user will enter the
password in the box and hit the submit button,
the password box and the message will be replaced
by a web form that they want to fill. Keep in
mind that, you can also use this method to
protect your web forms placed in other areas
like sidebar and all. Apart from this, what you
may find more interesting about this form locker
is that it also allows you to limit the total
no. of password entry attempts, restrict access
to only users who are logged in, and accept the
form submissions on certain dates only. This
makes it a versatile tool for almost anything
you want to do with your WordPress forms. In
case you are also concerned about your website
security in addition to the security of your
form, I recommend you to have a word with our Los
Angeles web design company to get a
solution. Conclusion So you have seen how to
password protect your WordPress forms in an easy
way. I hope you got the answer that you were
looking for. And before you go I would like to
recommend that you should use this feature only
when it seems very important to do so. That means
if you are getting a particular number of form
entries everyday that is manageable, you should
refrain from using form locker. However, if the
number of form entries that you get is huge or
they are not valid submissions you must password
protect your WordPress forms. Do you have any
