Feature Request: Encrypt specific fields in a form.

  • Melva Robinson
    Asked on August 14, 2023 at 2:02 PM

    Form encryption I understand that encrypts the whole form. Is there a way to encrypt just certain fields.(ex social security number) Is keeping client information secure and what is process for jotform keeping info like this protected? My previous form provider had that option and I wanted to see if that is an option on jotform as well.

    Hi Melva,

    Thanks for reaching out to Jotform Support.  Unfortunately, the feature you're looking for isn't available at Jotform right now. We've gone ahead and escalated your request to our developers, but when or if it's developed depends on their workload, how viable it is, and how many other users also request it. If there are any updates, we’ll circle back to this thread and let you know.

    Thanks for your patience and understanding, we appreciate it.

    Our firm needs to be able to encrypt SSNs as well. We would like you to develop this feature.

    Hi Melva,

    Thank for reaching back to us. I understand the importance of the ability to encrypt specific fields only. While I can't assure if this will be implemented, rest assured that we are looking into it and depending on the other factors to consider such the number of request we receive, how viable it is and the workload of our developers, we may develop this.

    We'll let you know when it's developed or if there's any update.

    I like that feature too. I was concerned about my essay project,after i went to this https://www.topessaywriting.org/samples/brigham-young-university-essay website. This website aids in my timely completion of my essay, and they also write my paper. Watch several samples and reviews to receive it right now.

    Would agree that it would be great to encrypt certain fields vs the entire form.
