Hiding Your Form Data Entries

Do you have to enter sensitive data--information that you wouldn't want anyone else to see? If you're using a data entry form, or the Form Wizard, then use the control's Input Mask property to protect that data from being seen by prying eyes.

Of course, Forms can also be further protected by password, this is just a convenient way not to show data as you type especially if it is sensitive data. However, this also means you can't see the data you type either, so you may want to change it back to validate the data and then return the property value to Password.
