    Great service - I'm interested in using for SSL forms and the creation of the form and storage on your webserver looks great.

    However, I seem to be able to log into my account with a non-SSL web address and see the SSL submissions without being on an SSL page myself - surely this step of accessing the submission should also be SSL?

    Perhaps I'm missing something - thoughts gratefully received!

    Hi Nathan,

    Secure or SSL Forms are for secure communications between the client (i.e the end user of your form) & Jotforms' servers. These communications are encrypted to prevent snooping by a 3rd party, and are useful if any of your forms contain sensitive information such as credit card or payment details or any other data of a personal nature. Which means, the SSL applies when the form is being filled out. In the case of accessing it, your account is already secured as you will need to log in first before you can access your Submissions page, and our servers are highly secured. 

    I hope it helps.

    Thank you.
