Prevent Files from being downloaded

Could you provide us a way to prevent files from being downloaded. There may be information that we want to share with people, but don't want it to go  any further. Although not bullet proof, this would help in some way.


Example would be: financial reports would be available for members in the member area, but they would have to log in. If they print it, it could be left in the car, at the restaurant, etc...


Thanks,

I meant to include, download, copy and print as functions to be prevented with files

Hi Pablo.


Thanks for the question.


This is a bit of a hard thing to prevent. Browsers have their own way to download and print documents, and while right click can be disabled it doesn't prevent a number of other things that can be done to get that data printed etc.
