    Is it necessary to use https to embed in Facebook?

    Will it work if I embed using http? For all browsers and apps?

    Hi tomchen,

    You can embed the form to facebook using either protocol (http://www.jotform.com or https://www.jotform.com) not secure or secured.

    BUT where it will matter is when the URL for the facebook page where the form was used. 

    Example:

    If the URL access by a user is https (https://facebook.com) but the form embedded is not (http://www.jotform.com) -- the browser will fail or will have a security error issue.

    From what I have been seeing lately, Facebook had be redirecting already to the https protocol by default as part of it security access.

    Hope this answers your inquiry. Thanks.
