    Good morning.

    If I create a form where people fill in their social security numbers and drivers license info, and then the form is emailed to me,

    How secure is it?

    Is there a way to encrypt?

    Thanks

    Tom

    Hello

    We don't allow users to put their Social Security Number or any other sensitive form data to be used in their form as this is against our Terms of use.

    So we suggest you not to use those specific sensitive information fields in your forms to avoid account suspension.

    If you want to encrypt your form data, you have to use our encrypted form.

    Please follow this guide to know how to create and use your encrypted form:

    Let us know if you have any further query.

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    You will need to use both SSL and form encryption if you wish to collect SSN data.
