About Prevent Direct Access
As it names suggests, Prevent Direct Access Gold plugin allows website owners to prevent visitors, unauthorized users, and search engine bots from directly accessing private and confidential WordPress files such as images, audios, videos, zip archives, and documents. Prevent Direct Access supports all file types.
By default, all your file uploads to WordPress are available and accessible to anyone. This exposes all your personal or paid product files to the public. Prevent Direct Access Gold plugin will take care of this problem. Working with Prevent Direct Access is very easy: Simply upload your files using the WP uploader, and you’re now able to protect any file with a single click.
Your images will be protected against hotlinking. Prevent Direct Access Gold will also let search engines know that they should not index your files. As a result, they won’t appear in Google and other search engines results.
The plugin will be very beneficial for e-commerce sites that sell digital products such as WordPress themes, plugins, Photoshop assets, music in MP3 format, and many others. Prevent Direct Access Gold also integrates perfectly with the most popular membership WordPress plugins.

- Protect unlimited media files including but not limited to PNG, JPEG, ZIP, PDF, MP3, and MP4
