    When they are no a secure form the browser should show a lock icon. That's how they can see that it is secure. they can also see the "https" in the URL.

    What if your form is embeded in the code and you don't have a ssl on your site?

    In that case the form will be submitted securely, but your user will still see http:// in the URL.

    Just to be clear - does this mean that, for example, a person fills out a form and uploads a file. I've embedded the form in my website that is NOT served over https. The form itself is checked "secure form". Does this mean that the file will be uploaded to my Dropbox securely?

    The file will still be uploaded securely since the form  itself is secure.
    Files uploaded via the form does not go through your website JotForm
    directly process the upload to DropBox.

    Hope this helps.
