    Can someone abuse my form If I embed it using source code?

    Asked by EloineChap on May 04, 2017 at 04:04 PM
    I do have one question about embedding the source code like this. One reason I like jot form is I don't get much spam like I've had with self hosted forms in the past. Would this open the door to more spam bots or abuses of the form if I put forms on my web pages this way?

    No. Though the form is embedded using any embed method, the security of the forms remains the same since it always connects to the other libraries in the JotForm servers. When the form is submitted, the form submissions will be sent to your JotForm account. However, you can always take necessary precautions to avoid any abuse of the form by adding Captcha to the form, limiting the form submissions from the form preferences, etc.

    Hope this information helps!
