How to Mask Field Values for Password Fields

The Kinetic Platform does not include a specific password field type. Instead, you can turn any text element into a password field using a render attribute.

Note: Assigning the render attribute changes the way the field renders, but not how it is saved or retrieved.

Follow these steps to mask a password field:

  1. Add a text element to the form you want to update. Use whatever name and label you want.
