With this feature, you can protect the access to your survey with a password. If you secure the survey with a password (the same for everyone), you can be sure that the survey will be terminated only by authorised people (for example, only by the members of our company).
On the Startquestion.com website, we have three access levels for your survey:
1. One link for everyone.
2. One password protected link for everyone (See how to set a password).
3. Personal link for each respondent - secured with a single-use code (token), where each respondent has his or her individual one-time access password (See how to configure a survey with tokens).
How to protect access to the survey against outsiders?
1. Go to the Create tab, and then the Survey settings. This will expand the menu related to this function and the form fields for modifying the survey settings will appear.
2. Search the menu for the access form fields, and then select the access level you are interested in. Personal link for each respondent is the greater the chance that the survey will not be completed by outsiders.
What is worth remembering?
If the survey results are already collected, it is not possible to change the access level.
By default, the survey settings allow access to it via a direct link. (one link for everyone)
One password protected link for everyone also means that your survey will definitely not appear in the website's survey database, as well as will not be indexed by search engines such as Google.
