    How do I make the form secure?

    Asked by AMcKelvey on April 22, 2014 at 02:39 PM
    1. How do I make them secure? I see that I could do that under Embed Form but I am not sure how to do it otherwise.

    Hello Anna

    You can do it in the embed form section, as you mention, but if you wish you may just add https:// instead of the http:// on the normal forms.

    Let us know if we can be of more assistance.

    OK, I figured out how to make the form secure by going to the Embed Form Wizard and clicking "secure"; however, once I do that and I go to Preview to copy the link to send to a client, it still says 'http://' instead of 'https://' - what am I doing wrong?

    Hello Anna

    I'm sorry, it seems I created some confusion by mentioning the method for copying the form's url in the preview mode in a previous thread. If you preview the form it will show the non-secure version of the url, the http:// but you can manually replace it by https:// while copying it to paste in the email. It would work like this:

    http://form.jotform.us/form/41123702281139 - non secure  version

    https://form.jotform.us/form/41123702281139 - secure version

    Other method is to go to the embed form section, select Secure form and then copy the url directly from here:

    I'm very sorry for not being clear in my previous answer.
