All Forms Including Free Accounts Are Now Secure

October 06, 2015
It’s always exciting to share great news. Today, we get to share great news for all JotForm users. All links and embed codes on our new Publish user interface are secure by default. In conjunction with this, we no longer limit our free users to just 10 secure submissions. All form submissions, whether secure or regular, will be counted the same.
Secure Submissions with JotForm

Oftentimes form submissions will contain relatively innocuous information, and many developers may not take the time to set up a secure connection. SSL submissions are slightly more resource intensive to process. But the upside of 100% secure submissions far outweighs a nominal increase in processing time.

If you’re running a survey about people’s favorite type of cake, there’s usually no need to guard that data. But if you’re collecting email addresses, or even more personal information, you really don’t want it transferring across the open internet. With JotForm, you can keep it safe.

This change primarily affects our users on our starter plan, who were previously limited to 10 SSL submissions a month. All other users always had access to just as many secure submissions as non secure. But, previously the default embed code was the non-secure option. In order to take advantage of the secure submissions, you need to use the secure embed code or secure permanent link to your form.

On JotForm’s new interface, you can find the secure publish codes here.

Publish Secure JotForm

Some users are still on the older interface. This document shows how to get the SSL embed codes on the original JotForm interface. To that end, we’re in the process of revamping the JotForm form builder, piece by piece and rolling it out to only some of our users at a time.

Secure submissions by default are just another way JotForm gives the best to its users. Now you can know that your form responses are more secure than ever, by always using SSL form submissions.

Great 'The SSL Limits on Free Accounts are Lifted' ... but they are still limited to 100, because free accounts are max 100 submissions. Although it sounds great 'All users can use as many secure form submissions as they like', in reality that means 'max 100'

This is absolutely great. However, for some reason my SSL is limited to 100 despite my Free Submissions being 160. Shouldn't the Free SSL follow the total Free Submissions we have available? Otherwise, there was no point in sharing on Facebook and Twitter to get those additional submissions.

Is it possible that the URL changes to I tried a few forms and they all work with https in front. Just want to make sure this will work with all forms without the need to change any URLs. Thanks in advance! Chris

Hi There, I notice that you now offer unlimted SSL on free accounts, as I was paying $9.95 a month for SSL. I have now just down graded to the FREE version. Thanks for the great product.

Just to confirm, if I use the default embed code to place the form on page on my website that isn't secure (just http), is the form still considered secure?

Adding to previous posts concern Is the secure form still as secure if it's embedded on a website that doesn't have ssl or https designation in its URL

mccoymade (January 26, 2017 at 06:45 PM)

which type of SSL are you running?

Domain Validated certificates (DV), Organization Validated certificate (OV) or Extended Validation certificates (EV).

Is it 256-bit AES Encryption for SSL?

I'm using the Wordpress plugin to display a feedback form on my https site but the feedback form is still using http references and so tyhe brower complains that parts of my site are not secure. Is there an updated Wordpess plugin with the https URL or can I make that change to the plugin code myself? Thanks

Is there any way we can upgrade to a TLS v1 instead of the SSL v3 certificate?
