    Hi,

    We actually have a built in security tool that you can use, but it is mostly used when embedding a form. Please check this article:

    We use a 256-bit Godaddy SSL Certificate. Here is what they say about the security in their FAQ:

    What Is the Encryption Strength of Your SSL Certificates?

    All of our SSL certificates support high-grade 256-bit encryption.

    The actual encryption strength on a secure connection using a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by the user's browser and the server that the website resides on. For example, the combination of a Firefox browser and an Apache Web server normally enables up to 256-bit AES encryption with our SSL certificates. This means that depending on the Web browser and Web server that combine to establish the secure connection through one of our SSL certificates, the encryption strength of the secure connection may be 40, 56, 128, or 256 bit.

    Here are some additional suggestions to increase the security of your data:

    your forms can be https, that is the important part.  You wouldn't really want ssl on the builder, all it would serve is to slow down the site speed. as it would have to encrypt and decrypt a bunch of data that is probably going to be shared as a publically available template.  

     

    After you click the publish option, tick the box that says use secure form next to your link
