    If I embed my form on my webpage can someone still copy the form by entering the URL? 

    From my understanding, someone can easily copy my form if I share the jotform.com link. But what if its embedded in my site? Is there a better way to embed so its not easily copied? 


    Thank you!

    You can forbid cloning of your form even easier, here is how:

    1) Go to settings - https://www.jotform.com/myaccount/settings

    2) Check the "Do not allow my forms to be cloned by other users." option:

    That will prevent your form to be cloned.

    Let us know if that helped.

    Thank you!

    Thank you! I understood that jotform users wouldn't be allowed to clone form, but does this also keep people from going using “inspect element” to copy the code and create forms from mine?

    Unfortunately, by inspecting element, your all website pages' front-ends can be cloned. However, the back-end side cannot be cloned. Let us know if you need further assistance.
