How to protect against direct access to images?



  • I would like to protect against direct access to images, e.g. direct links to images without visiting the web site.

    What is the preferred way to do this?



  • Hi, I would say you cannot by default.

    You can still create a layer of protection with a CloudBackend function that would check the URL it's coming from is your website then load the image and then use this function as a source from your images instead of the direct URL but it has its downsides :

    • API time consumption
    • Very slow compared to direct images loading
    • If they find your AppDrag image URL they can use it
