Link steal


#1

well i like the htaccess that prevent hotlink and test it work very well. The only thing i am worry right now is when they copy the link to any download manager or put on the address URL bar, the files still downloadable. Is there a way to prevent this also?

The only way to truly prevent that would be to password protect the file in question, ie. through the use of an .htaccess file. There are ways to make things progressively more difficult to download, but unless you completely bar the user from accessing it, it’s still possible.
