    I have been googling to understand the *why* but haven't been able to find a more detailed answer.

    Is it a legality / data security issue of the information that can be collected in a form?

    Are you referring to a Login Form? Jotform does not support Login Form because some users may use this form for phishing activities. To know more about Jotform's Terms of Use, you can check this page: Terms.


    Do let us know if you need further assistance.

    Yes, I was referring to login form. Thank you.

    I'll add what I read here, in case anyone googles and comes across this thread.

    Phishing You agree that Company may terminate your Jotform Service immediately if a form is created or Jotform is found to be used to: Obtain credit cards sensitive information, get social security numbers, show content with child pornography. Or if a form was made to steal user login credentials. All these activities are considered as Phishing and any account along with the guilty forms will be suspended immediately
