    To use SSL on your forms, its only a matter of changing any references to your forms' URL to:


    Where FORM_ID is the 11 digit unique ID of your form. 

    You can also just click the Secure checkbox in the Embed Form wizard to update your embed codes to use these secure URLs before adding the embed code to your website.


    Hope that helps. Let us know if anything remains unclear.

    I went ahead and set up the forms using the secure forms option.  I then copied the embed code links to specific pages on my website.  However, do you know if I should see https in the URL or some type of "lock" icon when viewing the forms on my website?  I don't see any of that and one would assume it's not secure even though I know personally it's pointing to a secure form.

    If your website doesn't have an SSL certificate, embedding a form with SSL into it means there will still non-secure elements on the webpage (i.e your sites content) so the web browser wont report the page as being secure. (e.g add a lock icon )

    If you take a look at the form itself when hosted on JotForm, you will see the web browser reporting that the (entire) page is secure.

    e.g https://secure.jotform.com/form/13274752358
