    Am i really using SSL protection?

    Asked by marsupial on July 18, 2011 at 11:08 PM

    I am on the 2 years premium plan.

    I create a form with SSL protection using https but the page on my website is http, I read on an article that if my page is just http I should not be able to use it to embed the SSL form, but I tried and it seems to be working and everytime a person fills out the form and send it it counts as a Secure SSL submissions in my account, I would like to know if it is really working as SSL or not

    When you embed the form securely using the quick embed or iframe methods,the form is called on your site as an embedded external SSL page, so your website's being non-secure (http) does not have anything to do with the form.

    When you submit the form, the information entered is submitted directly to our server. Your site does not interfere with the data in any way. As long as the form is embedded securely - by checking the secure form option in the Embed Form Wizard - the data entered is transmitted in an encrypted fashion.  Proof is that it counts as an SSL submit in your account.
