    We have people submitting forms with their SSN's. Are the forms secure or is there a way to add a level of security?

    Hi, Crowdsource, 

    Good day!

    You have nothing to worry about when it comes to your security with JotForm. Over the past 9 years, JotForm had not lost any customer data ever by taking security seriously as it should be.

    - Our servers are protected by private networks and constantly updated and patched.

    - Our Development Team, especially, are encouraged to follow best security practices.

    - All data transfer are made of 256-bit SSL secure connection.

    I hope this makes an assurance for you to be comfortably secure using JotForm's online resources.

    thanks - I was wondering why it does not say https on the address bar?  That would inspire more confidence.

    You can embed your form using the secure embed code:

    Or you can provide your users with the secure link to your form.  Here is the regular link:

    And this would be the secure link to the same form:

    Using the https://secure.jotform link to your form will use SSL based transmission of your data.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
