How to use the password block

Learn everything you need to know to use the password block in your forms.

When to use

Use the password block to let your respondent enter a value that's not visible in the form. Optionally you can use this block to protect parts of your form.

How to use

Add a new block to your form and then select the question type Password. You can now customize this block to your needs with the following features.

Basic features

Each question block has basic features to present the block the way you need, for example Name, Description and Help text. And most of the question blocks have common options, like the Required and Exportability options.

More information about these basic features can be found in the help article about our form builder.


Unlike other question blocks the entered values of password blocks aren't saved to the dataset of the form entries by default. In that way the passwords that your respondents enter, aren't saved unnecessary.

If you wish to include the entered passwords in your dataset anyway, you can overrule the default setting by enabling the Exportability feature and activate the Include in the dataset setting. Entered passwords will now be saved and readable inside your dataset.


Please make sure you are always careful with using the dataset if you choose to save passwords!

Secure password verification

You can use the password block to protect (parts of) your form by using the secure password match check. More information on that can be found in this article.

Branch conditions

Logic is important to make your forms smart and conversational. The password block can work with the following branch conditions to help you with that:
