    Hi ellienora00,


    There are two ways to do this. Submitted data and form entries can be encrypted.

    For form data encryption;

    1) Create a new Form.

    2) Enter Settings> Form Settings page

    3) Press the "SHOW MORE OPTION" button.

    4) Mark Encrypt Form Data as "Yes".

    5) As soon as you change it to "Yes" you will see a modal popup (shown below) asking you to add your own public key or generate one for you.

    6) You have to download the file you created and then press the close button.

    In this way, you protect the data in your form.


    To encrypt form access;

    1) Create a new Form.

    2) Enter Settings > Form Settings page

    3) Press the "SHOW MORE OPTION" button.

    4) You can set your password by ticking "Enable password protection" in the Password Protection field.

    When you do this, you can enable people who will access the form to log in with the password you set.
