    Wait, how do I set my forms up for SSL encryption submissions?

    Asked by bhzlacewigs on May 17, 2010 at 01:55 PM
    Ok, maybe I overlooked it, but have spent 15 minutes searching the site trying to figure out how to set my forms up so that my users can submit their forms with encryption. How is this done? Am I just putting https on the forms on my site?  Also, are my users able to see that the form is encrypted or see some kind security symbol? Does the form have to be on a seperate webpage or can it be embedded and still have the encrypted ssl function? Thanks.

    All forms support SSL on JotForm. You just have to change "http://" to "https://"

    Example: Let's take a regular JotForm form:

    Then change "http://" to "https://":

    If you would like to embed a secure form on your site you should just change "http://" to "https://" on the form code and that will also be submit securely.

    However, if you do not have a security certificate on your web site, the user would not see a lock icon on their browser on the form page. So, you should probably just link to the form URL directly.
