Secure Data Transfer

Data transmissions over the web can be intercepted for a non-secure connection.


The Secure Data Transfer feature offers you the following options regarding  the security of your form’s result entries.


Formdesk sends email messages to you and/or the visitor

Email messages can be intercepted. Therefore Formdesk offers the ability to send the automatic response as an email attachment. The attachment can be an encrypted PDF or zip file and requires a password to open. This applies to both the autoresponder sent to your respondents and for the email notification sent to yourself.

The password for the automatic response will be generated automatically by Formdesk. You can communicate this password over a secure connection (https) using the Message after form submission option on the Settings tab, section ‘Post submission page’. It’s also possible to communicate the password using an SMS message to a telephone number that was filled-in on the form.

Submitting form data

When sending the form the data will be transferred secured with HTTPS. Even when you don’t have the additional feature in your plan.

Log in on your account

And finally, viewing data within your own account will always automatically be done via a secure connection. Even when you don’t have the additional feature in your plan.


This add-on is included in all business subscriptions and can be purchased for € 99 per year in addition to a standard subscription.
