Is there any way to secure information collected in a jot form, ie credit card information that is then sent by email?

    Hi Bverhaaren,

    It's generally considered a bad idea to send sensitive information by email because email routing is untrusted.  You could secure the form itself by using an SSL connection (to do this, just change your address from "http" to "https"), but once the email is en route it's in the wild I'm afraid.

    A better solution would be to integrate one of the JotForm payment tools into your form, then you can be sure that the details are secure.  Paypal is the most simple of these and it makes credit card transactions very easy to manage.

    Best regards,

    Daniel
