The Password field is great for entering passwords or other private information. Entered characters are displayed as dots so it is not readable. The entered text is normally saved as plain text (not hashed) in the database. If you use the Registration Add-on and map the password field to the WordPress password, the password will not be saved in Formidable.
Standard field options
A Password field has the following options:
- Field type
- Read Only
- Field key
- CSS layout classes
- Label position
- Field size
- Conditional logic
Field specific options
Use the Confirmation Field option to require a user to confirm that the information they entered in a field is correct. For more information see the Confirmation fields page.

Password strength meter
Check the box to 'Show password strength meter' to show a password requirement list under the password field. As the user types, each red X in the password indicator will turn to a green checkmark as the requirement is filled. When the option to 'Require a strong password' is not checked, the strength meter is a guideline and is not enforced with validation.
Default values and field icons
The default value icons can be used to specify whether the text entered in a Password field on the form builder page should be a default value or a placeholder. Learn more about how to set a placeholder in a Password field.
Field action icons allows you to duplicate, delete, and/or move a field on the form builder page. See the field action icons article for more information.
Display password fields
Display the value submitted in a Password field in a form's confirmation message, email, or View. Just insert [x], where x is the ID or key of the Password field.
If you are mapping a Password field to the password option in a Register User action, you will not be able to display the password value. A user's WordPress password is not saved in Formidable database tables.
