    When adding a payment option for PayPal the form takes the user to PayPal's site to enter in secure information such as credit card nembers.  With the Authorize.net payment option this information is entered directly into my form.  Is this data secure?

    Thanks for contacting us.

    Please notice that the Credit Card information entered in your form using any of our payment tools is processed directly by the payment processor, so this data is not managed by Jotform. Jotform simply captures the information and then allows the payment gateway to process it so, that the transaction/payment can be completed.

    That way, no Credit Card information is stored in Jotform database and cannot be manipulated by other than the payment processor.

    To secure even more CC information of your users you can convert your form to secure mode:

    Please inform us if you need further assistance with this inquiry.

    Thanks
