How can we password protect WordPress forms?

WordPress forms – Users have a personal query on this question “How to add password in WordPress forms?” Whenever you create a form in WordPress, it is open up to all users. So, no permissions are required for the user to view the forms created in WordPress. But, some users were not convenient to showcase this form to all users instead they add up a password to give access to selected users. A user without a password cannot view the form page as like before.

Here’s a full explanation: A developer must maintain and make changes in the website whenever required for his clients. We cannot countdown the clients since it entirely depends upon the developer’s talent. For example, if a developer has 6 or 8 clients for any queries related to the website a client can contact the developer through the created form in WordPress. Apart from his clients, no others are recommended to fetch the WordPress form.

Some clients will have a chat or call a meeting on skype, zoom, or something else. A client used to schedule a meeting in those applications but a non-client couldn’t schedule the meeting in listed applications. Like a WhatsApp group, you can create a group where a client can share his thoughts or opinion but a non-client doesn’t have features to share his thoughts.

Note: Why there is a focus behind non-clients? The answer is very simple! You can allow them to get a WordPress form but all those should be valid right?

We have discussed why a password is required in WordPress form. So, let us start the work to add a password in WordPress forms by two methods such as using WPForms and WordPress page.

WPForms to add password in WordPress forms:

Step 7: Go to the screen top to tap on the button “save changes”. Only a user with a password can see the contact form on that website page. For non-clients, it won’t be displayed so that, they can see only the remaining content.
