    What does 'secure' mean in the form?

    Asked by GreenhouseScholars on September 04, 2012 at 03:53 PM

    Hi -

    I'm creating a link to embed a form as a URL.

    I noticed you have a check box that says 'secure form' - what does that mean, exactly?


    Thank you,

    Secure or SSL forms are for secure communications between the client (i.e the end user of your form) & JotForms' servers. These communications are encrypted to prevent snooping by a 3rd party, and are useful if any of your forms contain sensitive information such as credit card or payment details or any other data of a personal nature.

    Here is a link that explains the topic further.  Hope that helps!
