    I have a question about security. If the session ID is an email address, couldn't I use someone else's email and find the data in the fields already entered?



    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Save Forms and Continue Later

    Technically, yes, but you would need to already know the exact email address of that other participant. Also, if they have completed and submitted their form, the session would end and would no longer be accessible with that email address as a session.

    Still, if you wish to make your form sessions more secure/private, you could combine two or more answers to create a session.

    ?session={email4}{name}

    I hope this helps. Please let us know if you need further assistance.

    One more question about security - I was told once the user submits the form the info in the fields should no longer be there. Yet, when I am using my form and submit, if I go restart the form all the data is still there. Again, I am concerned about security, especially if people are using a shared computer.
