    secure information

    Asked by jenfletch on January 21, 2013 at 01:23 PM

    Hi there, I am setting up a website for a summer camp and need a form for registrations - there will be a lot of personal information on the forms. What does SSL secure submission mean and do I need that?


    Thank you,

    Hi Jen,

    SSL Secure Submissions means a submissions that's submitted to your form using an HTTPS protocol (secure form URL). e.g. https://www.jotform.com/form/1234567890

    Yes, that's very useful for securing form transactions. The data will be encrypted once it's processed.
