Sensitive Fields beta - greater Admin control of pre-fill


Form pre-fill offers convenience to your customers but bares the risk of their private identifying information leaking to others if an email with a link to a landing page is forwarded or shared to unintended recipients. Currently, pre-fill on Marketo Engage Forms is controlled at the Form or Global level Administrators lack granular control over pre-fill so that they can control it on a per field basis.


This beta introduces the ability to mark a field as “Sensitive” in Field Management. A Sensitive Field will have pre-fill disabled for that field on all forms globally in the subscription. The ability to enable pre-fill for that field will be disabled in the form editor for all users. An example use case is:


You have a form with pre-fill enabled on a landing page for users to register for a webinar. You collect the following fields on the form:

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Company Name
  • Title
  • Email Address

You have designated First Name, Last Name, and Email Address as “Sensitive” in Field Management. When someone clicks on a link in their email to the landing page, only the Company Name and Title fields will pre-fill with the lead’s values. Users editing the form are not able to override the setting to turn pre-fill on for the First Name, Last Name, or Email Address fields.
