    Encrypted form and SSL at the same time?

    Asked by imnresource on September 28, 2015 at 08:55 PM

    Would there be situations where one might want to use SSL submissions for an encrypted form? Does JotForm allow one to do this?

    Both SSL and Encryption feature works separately. You can use both at the same time if you want. There will be no problem with it, in fact it will tighten the form security.

    Form encryption occurs on the client side meaning when the user hits the submit button, all the data inputted on the form fields will be encrypted. They are converted into a bunch of characters or code so it is difficult for humans to understand. While the SSL encrypts the connection between the server and the browser which means data will travel into an encrypted connection once transmitted into the Jotform server.

    Thanks!
