How to Use the Password Field in Nelio Forms

The password field in a form is the designated field for users to enter a password in your form. It is a field that doesn’t display what the user types. Each keystroke is represented on the field by a placeholder bullet, so that someone looking over the user’s shoulder can’t see what they type.

In this entry, we’ll show you all the options available for the text field with Nelio Forms.

Adding a Password Field to Your Form

When creating a new form or editing an existing one, adding an additional password field is as easy as adding a new Password field block in the block editor. You can use the Block Inserter + icon, or a shortcut slash command or use the More options on any of the block’s toolbar to insert a block.
