    Security question

    Asked by Steve  on March 02, 2017 at 12:46 PM

    I recently used software that generated php code for a form and then someone filled a field with some hack that enabled them to load weird files on the server - so... what I am asking is about JotForm's security. Is it secure from hackers? (You can tell I am not a coder)

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    We care about security. All our forms are by default secure:


    The forms and submissions are transmitted securely with a 256 bit high-grade encryption. You can also log into JotForm site securely and download your submission reports over a secure connection using https://www.jotform.com

    We provide a very high security through out our hosting provider's servers for stored data. We have a very powerful cloud of servers in SSAE16 Audited facilities which provides security protection against malicious attacks like SQL injection and denial of service (DOS) attacks. 

    If you want your form user to know that their data will be sent securely, you can add enable security certificate seal in your form. Here is a guide which you can refer: http://www.jotform.com/help/131-Enabling-Security-Certificate-Seal-on-Secure-Forms 

    You can also encrypt your form and your data. 


    We're also Safe Harbor certified. Please see our Privacy policy here:


    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
