    What is the difference in non-secure form and a secure form for url?

    Asked by SandraAPSA on February 09, 2015 at 01:43 PM

    I have already posted, I beleive, a non-secure form online. Can I check off the secure form in the embedded section to make the document secure. Does this change the web address.

     

    If the URL is different.. If someone already has the old url, can they still submit the applcations. 

     

    Does it also change where other forms are sent?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    All the jotforms can be accessed via regular http and secure https connections. The secure form option is usually required when you accept sensitive details (e.g. credit card information on payment forms).

    I have already posted, I beleive, a non-secure form online. Can I check off the secure form in the embedded section to make the document secure. Does this change the web address.

    No, it does not change anything on your web site and standard form links. You will need to check the 'secure form' option, then copy secure form link/code, and use that secure code on your website. Please follow the next guide:
