How to Set the Security Settings of a Survey

 

Security settings let you choose whether you'd want to keep your surveys public or private. Public surveys are accessible by anyone while private surveys can be accessed only by those users that you authorize.

 

Here's how you can set the security settings of a survey:

 

Step 1: Go to a survey's Settings >> Security. You can keep the option of Security Setting as Public or Private. In case you keep it public, anyone can access your survey.

Step 2: When it is private, you get the following options (as also shown in the screenshot below):

  • Private access with a link.
  • Private access with a password.
  • Private access for selected users & groups.

 

Private access with a link is the simplest option of the three. You can just share the link with those users who you want to take the survey.

Step 2.1: When you select the option Private access with a password, you get a text field where you can enter any text as the password which will be used by your users to access the survey. You will have to share this password, along with the survey link, with those users who you want to take the survey.

Step 2.2: The last option is Private access for selected users & groups. Users can access this survey using a unique combination of username and password provided by you. To manage users and groups, click Manage Users.
