    Is SSL consider as secured as encryption?

    Asked by miyonimuwc on October 01, 2015 at 04:55 AM


    i didn't do anything and immediately when i chose to copy the embed link it appeared with the "https - secure" beginning - does jotform automatically set ssl to all form?

    also is ssl consider as secure as to encrypt my form? - i will want to add payment method to my form so i would want to maximize the security in my form. however i would want to be able to export the data (except the credit card information) to pdf and to google drive. so i am wondering if SSL only is consider strong and safe enough.


    and another submission related question:

    i have quite a long form with some long text answers. 

     in the table at the bottom part of the submission page the sumbitted forms are shown with all the answers and thus  the slot for each submission is very very wide and not comfortable to work with. is there an option to configure the table so it will show only some of the data of the form (only name/email/phone and such..) ?

    Is SSL consider as secure as to encrypt my form?

    Yes, SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Submission is a type of submission that uses an encrypted protocol for transmitting messages from the web browser to the server.  This uses a certificate that only the web user's browser and the server can understand, so transmissions from browser to server will be encrypted and that hackers will not be able to sniff information you are sending.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
