    JotForm, the drag-and-drop online form creation tool, now lets users create encrypted questionnaires.

    The information is encrypted using the Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) public key-private key method, which asks for an authentication key before any info is decrypted. When a form is filled out, users will get a notification that the answers are available online.

    Once a user logs in, a private key is needed to access the information. JotForm tells us all information is encrypted; it can’t even see the encrypted data as it never reachers servers in a readable format.

    “A lot of JotForm users share our views about security, and this is a tremendous feature for them,” says JotForm founder Aytekin Tank. “This is an especially important feature for our users who work in industries where delicate information is exchanged online.”

    Encrypted forms are available for all users, and can be accessed from the accounts page.
