Protect Unlimited Media Files and All File Types

Prevent Direct Access Gold protects unlimited WordPress media files and all file types including PNG, JPEG, ZIPs, PDFs and MP4 that you upload to your WordPress Media, Pages or Posts. Once protected, they cannot be accessed directly via their original links (URLs). Unauthorized users will be redirected to your 404 error page when attempting to access and download these files.

Block Google from Indexing your WordPress Protected Files

Prevent Direct Access plugin explicitly tells Google and other search engines not to index any of your protected content so that your protected files and their original URLs won’t be indexed nor appear on the search results.

Restrict Protected File Access to Logged-in Users or Paid Members

Prevent Direct Access allows some specific roles of your website such as your subscribers and paid members to access your WordPress protected files.

This feature comes in handy when you have a membership site in place where you want to protect your private files against the public, and at the same time, allow your members to access those files.

Restrict Media Files Access to Logged-in Users

Create Unlimited Download Links

Prevent Direct Access Gold gives you the power to create as many private download links as you would like to. That allows you to share a protected file with different groups of users, and at the same time, keep track of clicks on each and every private download link. You can even customize your download links so that it looks more meaningful and legitimate to your users.
