How is my 123FormBuilder form data secured and processed?

123FormBuilder is actively taking all the measures needed to keep your form data secured. We host our data on AWS (Amazon Web Services) and store all information in data centers across the United States and the European Union on a 256-bit SSL connection. All servers are scanned on a daily basis by AWS and McAfee Security, thus preventing any type of security threats. You may read more about how we handle service security on our security page.

As for your personal data within your form builder account, all necessary precautions and measures are made to be compliant with the needed data security laws within the US and internationally in healthcare (HIPAA), and in general (Data Protection Act).

However, data protection is a responsibility shared between 123FormBuilder and you as the owner. This means that certain measures are yours to make, such as keeping your account’s password secret and not sharing it.

Security features

123FormBuilder has additional security features that you may use to secure your account, forms, submissions, and uploads as follows:

  • Multi-Factor Authentication Device. Log in to your 123FormBuilder account in a two-step process with the help of your smartphone. The first step involves typing in your account username and password. The next step involves entering a secret code that your phone generates. The code resets automatically every minute. You’ll need an authentication app installed on your phone.
  • Data Encryption. You may use this feature to encrypt all data obtained from your form users.
  • Form Password Protection. You may password protect your forms so that people cannot open them unless they have the correct password. Good for groups that work on a certain project.
  • Anti Spam Protection. Add a verification box that generates different characters below your form before the submit button. Your form visitors can’t submit the form unless they type the correct characters. Therefore, no spam can get through.
  • IP Submission Limit. Limit the number of submissions you accept from the same IP. You can reset the limit by hour/day/month/year or never. This way, you may prevent the same spam messages from arriving in your submissions grid.
  • Uploads Visibility. You may hide your uploads when not logged in to your account or password-protect them. This means that the files cannot be viewed or obtained via their URLs. Comes with three options: public, show only after entering the password or show only when logged in the same browser.

We are also compliant with the UETA and ESIGN Acts when it comes to using the Digital Signature field on your forms.

Important Note

If you are a paying user, you benefit from a full recovery of your forms and submissions in case you deleted them from your account while the subscription was active. We can restore your data, but only within a 30 day period from the day the deletion occurred. Older deleted data is erased from our servers for better optimization.


  1. When I try to submit a form using Safari I get a message that the form is not secure. Do you want to submit it, Why is this?

  2. Hello,

    I am very interested in using your platform,
    The only barrier so far is a questionnaire that the IT department of the company I work for, Link Group is requiring for any external vendor.
    What would be the best way to fill a checklist of questions ?
    We could arrange a call with somenone working in the developer team, or I can send you the list of questions.

    Best Regards

    Frederic Buret
