    Unable to undo encryption

    Asked by Tribbey on June 29, 2017 at 09:59 AM



    I need assistance with viewing my encrypted forms. I created a key on my laptop. However, my computer is broken and I do not have the encryption key to view my forms. I turned the encryption off, but it still displays characters inside words. How can I change this? I do not see any steps to adjust this feature. 


    Thank you,

    The already encrypted data is lost. There is no way to decrypt the data. If you will implement this feature again, it will generate a new key which will work only on the new data you will receive, we would suggest you to read this guide first before implementing this feature: https://www.jotform.com/help/344-Encrypted-Forms-and-How-to-Use-Them
