    Secure notifications

    Asked by dave1973 on November 21, 2012 at 06:31 AM

    I have a secure form set up for a client, but if I set them up with a notification, it will send them an unsecure email with the data. How do I get the form submission data from my Jotform account to my client automatically and securely?

    You are correct in assuming that most email communication is insecure. 

    You shoudl edit the email composition and remove any sensitive info, it should only contain something, you have recieved a new submission. 

    As regards, sending the submission data secure to a client, you could download the submissions or a set of them every few days, use 7zip or another archiving tool to encrypt the archive with a password that only you and your client know. 

    There is not a way to automate the process of sending the data securely between a form builder and a client.
