    Feature Request Reminder: Form Breached and Cloned without Permission

    Asked by markashton on December 19, 2013 at 09:51 AM

    Hi,

    I have sent a demo out to a company. There are a lot of submissions going on.

    My razor sharp instincts tell me they are trying to reverse engineer my form ... rather not thanks.

    So, one disables the form and what do they see ...

     

    Well that's great ... I've now led them to my source ... and they can happily clone the form becuase you've done nothing about this have you?

    https://www.jotform.com/answers/243967-Feature-Request-Ability-To-Prevent-A-Form-From-Being-Cloned

    I mean it was only July ... but now my powerful little web-app is compromised ...

    What says you?

    Thanks

    Yikes, Very sorry about that Mark and I can see exactly what you mean by this. I think that you have a Valid point with this because with out that it is Potentially Damaging your own Business. The problem though is that unfortunately I'm unable to promise anything in regards to your previous Cloned Forms Control Feature you had originally requested to prevent that from happening. It's been added to our List. However, we do not currently have it marked as one of our top priorities to do just yet.

    Let me talk to our Developers some more on your behalf to bring this important matter up to them.

    Provide me with a method of preventing someone from nicking my intellectual property in the meantime ... or is it Open-Season on anyone's work ...??

    I've passed the message on to them as I stated in my first response. Additionally, I'm opening this via a New Support Ticket for this matter. I think this will help to serve as an Instant Reminder about your previous request also since I have made some further notes about it so we'll see what more we can do in regards to it.

    As normal though, please note that I do not have the authority to make any promises or final decisions about these sorts of things other than to bring it to our Dev Team's attention for consideration.

    Ok Thanks Kade ...

    I do need some control ... although they are just forms ... companies pay a lot of money for a data solution on smartphones ... they are little web-apps really.

    Needs to be addressed. ta
