    Loose check only uses cookies to check uniqueness. User's can bypass this by clearing their browsers cookie or use different browsers. 

    Strict check also checks IP addresses. When enabled, only 1 submission entry per 1 unique IP address.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions or concerns, please let us know.  Thank you for using Jotform!

    If I had multiple forms throughout one website, and I only want to allow users to complete each form once, which check would I use?
