    Thank You in advance!

    When "Secure Form" is checked, the form uses SSL protocol to send submitted information to JotForm's servers. That means that the data is using encrypted connection. The advantage to this is a very low, if not inexistent, chance of the data getting stolen while being transmitted to our server.

    This also means that each submission will take up an ssl allocation in your account. Free accounts are limited to only 10 submissions so please be careful when using this. When a free account reaches 10 secure submissions, forms will be disabled for the rest of the month.

    Hope this answers your question.

    Is the 10 submission limit per month? 


    Or for the entire life of the free account?



    Thank You in advance!

    Hi there,

    The 10 submission limit is per month which resets every first day
    of every month.

    Hope this helps.
