    Unfortunately, there is not much you can do.  All submissions that are submitted through encrypted form are now encrypted and can't be decrypted. Jotform does not store the copy of unencrypted submissions. Cracking encrypted submissions is not possible.

    I recommend you to turn off encryption on your form immediately, so the future submissions won't be encrypted.

    Please let me know if i can be of more assistance to you.

    Best regards.
