    Please be noted that the encryption keys are unique and it is required to have the same downloaded key in order to decrypt the encrypted form responses. Unfortunately, it is not possible to decrypt these submissions with any key. Please use the private key downloaded when it is prompted to view the submissions.

    Also, please go through the guide below for more information on form encryption.

    You may also try another browser just to check if it will work or not. Lastly, you may need to
