    I am just about ready to launch my site, and i’m doing a bunch of tests on my website. I had uploaded a test product, with the downloadable source file. I noticed the file was assigned a URL, however this is the file that people pay to access. I opened an incognito window and pasted the link, and I was able to see the file and save it. Is there a way to secure this file? Because after all it is what the customers are paying to access. Anyways I still love this plugin keep up the good work!

    WooCommerce handles all that stuff. Generally, Woo puts files in a htaccess protected directory. If that’s not working, it’s a Woo issue for sure.

    If you set your files to PHP Force for download you’ll never have anyone know the file URL anyway, that’s the fastest way to secure them.
