Hi what does it mean to make a form Secure? Once I meet my limit for secure form submissions does that mean my form is no longer active?

    I recently set up a resume form submission through Dropbox and Jotform. I made the from secure, however I recently got a notice that I have reached my limit for secure form submission. What does this mean for my form, it is no longer active or just no longer secure?

    Hello. Thank you for contacting us in this forum.

    We offer our users to use a Secured and non-secured links. When using the Secured version of the form you are literally accessing the form using HTTPS://secure as a prefix domain. This consumes your SSL submission quota. However, if you distribute or fill up a form under HTTP:// this only consumes or counted against your quota as a normal or unsecured submission.

    You can embed or distribute your form via "Setup & Embed" > "Embed Form"


    Please be advised, that Free accounts have a monthly limit of 100 Normal submissions and 10 SSL(HTTPS) submission and 10 Payment submissions. Please see our Pricing Page for more info about limitations on your Free account.

    You currently overlimit your account as you already consumed 61 SSL this month which goes beyond your current 10 SSL Submission Quota per month


    What happens when you go past the quota?. Your forms will be temporarily disabled until the next month's reset usually at the first day of each month.

    Please embed your form to your website using the non-secured version or distribute the form links using the HTTP version as shown on the illustration above to prevent consuming your 10 SSL submission quota. I have reset your SSL counter. We can only do this once per user as this is a human error. If you require further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask. Thank you
