Is my data safe? Is Happyforms HIPAA compliant?
Our competitors claim to be HIPAA compliant, but that’s misleading. Those dodgy buggers! Why have a compliant form if your site’s server, connected services and chosen inbox aren’t?
To keep things simple, we say to disable Happyforms from saving submissions and instead point replies to an email address hosted by an end-to-end encrypted email service like ProtonMail.
It’s easier than it sounds. Promise. Hit us up if you have questions.
Does it work on a site not using WordPress?
Nope. Sorry! We’re for all things WordPress ‘round here.

Nope. Happyforms has a fancy drag-n-drop builder. But if you find yourself needing to code something, email us. We can help you out with the nerdy stuff.
Does Happyforms work on all devices?
Yep! We always recommend building forms on a desktop, but you can fill out a form anywhere — mobile, tablet and desktop.
Sadly no longer compatible with your 90s Tamagotchi.

Yep! Happyforms directly connects with reCaptcha, Google Analytics, ActiveCampaign, AWeber, Constant Contact, ConvertKit, Mailchimp, MailerLite, MailPoet, SendFox, SendGrid, Sendinblue, Stripe, PayPal, Zapier, Integrately and Integromat.
