We have a Jotform Prayer request form that our parishioners use to send in prayer requests. The field where they enter their text is a text area field.
To me, this raises a security concern, because someone could embed malicious code in the textfield.
Appreciate your time and help.

Thanks for your help !!
We are using POST method to submit the data to our servers and textarea entries are saved as a text so I don't think someone can run it to our end. Our security is also embedded in the form and all submitted data are validated.
