    I checked your account. Your account was auto-suspended by our anti-phishing filter. One of your form is suspected to be used for phishing as it asks for username and password. FYI, JotForm forms cannot be used for authentication and is against our Terms of Use.

    Before we re-activate your account, please let us know why you need to ask user's login credentials.

    If its for a new registration, it should be allowed to ask username/password. you guys need to understand your terms and rectify the phishing detector algorithm.

    I have unsuspended your account after checking your forms . Please understand that Fighting with real phishers is an everyday task and cannot be manually done. We ought to control this in order to be compliant with Internet Regulations, otherwise our site might penalized as it was back in February ,2012 due to phishing forms stored into our servers.

    So , in order to control phishers we have implemented this system as we have millions of forms already hosted by our servers

    I have unsuspended your account, but I would recommend you the following in order to prevent further suspensions:

    -Do not create login forms (username or email fields along with password fields) in any form
    -Do not to leave untitled or unused forms (with unlabeled fields, or with no fields at all)  . This is what most likely happened to your account in particular
    -Upgrade to Paid subscription:  Our paid customers will not be automatically suspended, we have a dedicated team to review paid customers and unless we determine that a form belongs to a real "paid" phisher, we will not suspend that account, we will rather send an email message asking for the purpose of the form, before deciding something else

    Otherwise I cannot assure you this will not happen again

    Same here. I manage client's Twitter accounts. So on the form I added a text that "we will also need your Twitter username and password once your order has been processed". I was NOT asking for username or password on the form itself (however I had an autoresponder setup asking for that info). Was that why my account was suspended? If so tell me what to remove
