    Hi, I have a form ID 42807807210147 linked to my google site as below.  I recently re-embedded it as a non-secure form using the embed gadget iframe function through the google site, however I have noticed that the SSL count is now 12 and my form has been disabled.  I was using it just fine yesterday sending non-secure material for testing.  I may have used 15 non-secure requests at most. Why did my SSL count increase if it is non-secure and now locked out?

    Please do a one time reset and I think it should fix the problem.

    Thank you

    Hello Aftab,

    I have gone ahead and manually reset your SSL counter to zero and your account is now active. Please be informed that we can reset the counter only once per account.

    You should stop using the secure forms urls and secure embed scripts should be replaced by non secure embed scripts.

    Please be noted that you only have a guest account. This type of accounts are created when you do not sign up / sign in to your account and start building forms. Please sign up for a free account using your email address "aftabhaq@gmail.com" and your form should automatically move to your new account. Do get back to us with your new username if you do not see the form and we will move them manually.

    Thank you!

    You are using a secure form every time your jotforms are accessed over a secure link. What this means is that if the link starts with https and not with http you are using the secure form and each time there is a submission it is using your 10 SSL submissions.

    Is there a way you can check that I am not using a secure form.

    We can not see where you have embedded your jotform or how you and the people you have shared it with are accessing it.

    We could only help you if you tell us where the jotfom is embedded (all locations if there are multiple of them) and we can take a look for you to see if it uses secure or regular link.

    I hope that this helps.

    Best Regards,

    I have embedded it using the embed gadget link in google sites using a non-secure iframe code.



    I copied the above link into the below:

    Hi Aftab,

    Yes, I had inspected that page earlier on and it was using a non secure link, but I was not sure if you have maybe sent the secure link to someone over email or left a link to it somewhere on your site as a direct option?

    The jotform however is being loaded over secure Google embed method


    Now to get your secure submissions the submissions should be made over https://secure.jotform.us/ domain for you, which is not the case so I would need to check with my colleagues if this might have been caused by google iframe using HTTPS (secured protocol) or a combination of Google HTTPS on https://sites.google.com and //jujo00obo2o234ungd3t8qjfcjrs3o6k-a-sites-opensocial.googleusercontent.com through which the jotform is loaded.

    What I would suggest is to make a test submission on your website and take a look if the submission count for secured submissions has been increased.

    Also, I would need to suggest to switch to a paid plan because sites.google.com is on a secure connection so people using Firefox will not see the form loaded if non secure code is used. If you use source embed option for your jotform you should see it load, but there would be a notification to the users that some content is not going over secure connection. This is a security feature in browsers themselves and is not something we can change.

    Another option would be to place a link on your website to a jotform page (not secured link) and have them go there to submit a message. This would allow you to stay on free package and have your visitors able to submit.

    Best Regards,

    I would like to use the source embed option into my google site.  I was able to copy the source code but how do I embed it into my google sites page?
