📣 Make sure you have Gravity Forms installed and enabled before beginning.

Download the Gravity Forms Encryption plugin on this page, install and activate. Here’s what it should look like once activated.

Now it’s time to Activate the License.

With the license activated, let’s test it on a form. First, let’s encrypt this required field for SSN.

In the field’s general settings, you can choose the label and setup a Standard or Custom Input Mask. Here we select the Standard SSN option, and also set the field to be required.

In the Advanced settings, we can then select to Encrypt the data in this field by clicking the “Encrypt Field Value” option.

You may also enter text that will replace the encrypted text in any email notifications for the field.

Here’s a view of the form from the WordPress backend.

That’s it! Happy encrypting.
