Joomlatools Support Center

File (URL) Security

Issue: The document is secure and only viewable by persons who is logged into Joomla, good. However, if someone knows the document's URL and is not logged in, they can still access the document.

Questions: Is there a way to hide the URL of the document so that persons accessing the site do not know where the document is located? or Is there a method or process to prevent users from going around the joomla security and accessing the ACL secure/registered documents?

Even if someone knows the document URL's that person still needs to be logged in into Joomla to be able to access it. There is no way around this.

If this is not the case on your site something is wrong. How are you testing?
