Tap Forms values your security, offering multiple options to keep your data safe and protected. In the case that you’ve stored sensitive information within the app, you can choose two ways to utilize security.

Locking Tap Forms

To protect your forms from any unwanted eyes, you can choose to lock Tap Forms with a password. By auto-lock at a user-set interval and/or a lock when the document is first opened, only a password will open the document. To streamline the unlock process further, users with MacBook Pros outfitted with Touch ID can use their fingerprint for entrance. It is important to know, however, that if you forget your password and cannot login with a fingerprint, you will not be able to open the document. Because of this, we recommend storing the password in a safe location.

Note: Locking features only work with encrypted documents.


Encryption is a security technique that protects your data through a unique key that is unaccessible by any party but you. If you choose to encrypt your document, you’ll use your passcode to log in to Tap Forms. With encryption, your database will be inaccessible to anyone else inside and outside Tap Forms.
