SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) is a protocol developed for transmitting private documents or information via the Internet. SSL creates a secure connection between a client and a server, encrypting sensitive information being transmitted through the web page.
Many websites, like banking or e-commerce sites, use SSL to obtain confidential user information.
You can tell if a web page has SSL if the URL begins with https:// rather than http://. Your browser may also display an open or closed lock icon in the address bar.
Turning On SSL
SSL encryption is automatically turned on for all surveys and works on all the browsers we support.
Turning Off SSL
You can turn off SSL encryption from the collector options when using some collector types.
You can't turn off SSL encryption for Website, Email Invitation, or Facebook Messenger collectors, so you won't see this option in these collector types.
If you have Respondent Authentication turned on, it already includes SSL, so the SSL Encryption option will be disabled on the collector.
