    Hello Jenny,

    Is connection between integrations secure and how can we be sure?


    Yes, it is secure. You should enable the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) on your form so that data transmission is secured with the use of 256 bit high-grade SSL encryption.

    The actual encryption strength on a secure connection using a digital certificate is determined by the level of encryption supported by the user's browser and the server that the website resides on.

    The integrations will be using a secured connection in transferring the submitted data to your Google drive with the use of SSL.

    Files on your Google Drive is not public unless you explicitly share them. One exception to this is the applications you explicity give permission.
