Restricting Survey Access by Password or IP Address

You can restrict access to your survey by password or IP address from the collector options.

Password Protection

If you turn on Password Protection, when respondents click the survey link, they'll be prompted to enter a password in order to access the survey. There isn't a way to create a unique password for each respondent.

To add a password to your survey:

  1. Go to the Collect Responses section of your survey.
  2. Click the name of the collector and access the collector options. You may need to click Show advanced options.
  3. Turn on Password Protection.
  4. Enter the desired password.
  5. Customize the password required message and the error message that appears when respondents enter an incorrect password.

IP Restrictions

To restrict access to your survey based on the IP addresses of your respondents:

  1. Go to the Collect Responses section of your survey.
  2. Click the name of the collector and access the collector options. You may need to click Show advanced options.
  3. Turn on IP Restrictions.
  4. Choose either to allow only a specific list of IP address to take your survey or to block a specific list of IP addresses from taking your survey.
  5. Enter the IP addresses.
  6. Click Edit "survey closed" message. If someone's IP address is blocked, they'll see this closed message.
TIP! You can't enter wildcards or ranges of IP addresses. If you want only a particular group of people to access your survey and you don't have a complete list of IP addresses, we recommend adding a password to your survey instead.
