Embed Finmo on your website by using an iframe

It is possible to embed the Finmo mortgage application unto a website so visitors can fill out a mortgage form directly, however there are some things you need to be aware of.
The good news is it is possible to embed the Finmo app onto your website, if desired. The bad news is you have to use an older technology known as iFrames to do it and it is the ONLY way to embed a website into another website, there is no other way to do this. This is not a Finmo limitation - it is a web browser technology limitation.
​


Should you use an iFrame to embed your Finmo mortgage application on your website?"
​

The main issue is that the embedded website (in this case the Finmo mortgage application) loses its "responsiveness" - that means instead of displaying properly for the size of device being used to view it, it can display erratically. In practice this means if someone visits your website with a cell phone, they may not see the mobile version of your Finmo application presented correctly. They may see something with strange sizing of text, buttons and spacing that is often hard to navigate on a phone .
​
In addition to that your client's web sessions may not be stored. That means that they will not be automatically logged in and taken back to where they left off the next time they visit your site if they need to resume filling in the application. This also means if they accidentally refresh the web browser they will be kicked out of the application and have to sign in again.

Warning: Embedding iFrames into your website can create a security risk for your client's data. Hackers could potentially access data that is being entered, or perform other harmful hacks, if your site has been compromised


Recommended alternative to embedding

This method doesn't sacrifice the usability of the Finmo mortgage application and is safe and secure. Instead of embedding the application in your website you can simply link to your application from your website via a link that can be text or a button. This will navigate your client away from your website but because the Finmo application page contains your branding the experience will be continuous. This means everything will function properly including mobile responsiveness (the mortgage application's width height and layout will adjust for the type of device your client is using).
