    Hey, I want to make my forms secure - how do i do this? I found 'encrypt form data' in the options and tried that but it made a 'key' that got downloaded but it's just a bunch of text and I don't know what to do with it?

     

    I'm not sure I understand the encryption provided in general - I have embedded a jotform into my website - if someone fills it out does it submit the info with ssl protection?

     

    thanks

    Hi,

    Forms use https/SSL by default, there is nothing that needs to be done on your end to enable this.  If your embed code has https:// at the beginning of your JotForm links, you are all set. 

    Encryption of your submission data is different than encrypted transmission of that data:

    This encrypts your full form data in your JotForm account.  You need to use the key to remove the encryption and view your submission data.
