    SSL forms are secure communication between the client and the jotform servers which are encrypted to prevent snooping useful for forms that contain sensitive information such data of personal nature, which is different from the regular submissions. Please follow the link provided below for more information on this:

    SSL means Secure Socket Layer which is a communication standard between web server and browser. If you check the secure form you will get SSL submission. Please see the screenshot below to get a clear idea.

    After checked the secure form you will see the image below:

    For free account monthly SSL submission limit is 10.

    Thankyou, hopefully I have fixed the problem. Although when I checked, I had not ticked the "secure" box, so still not sure how the 10 have been used????

    Have you been testing/using the form using its https link? https://jotform.co/form/40432191640849

    That would also increment your SSL submission count.

    I checked your website, and I can see no reason why your SSL count is increasing - the link to your form is non-SSL.

    If the count goes up again - let us know. I have reset your SSL submission count to 5 so that we can monitor the situation.
