Protecting/Hiding Asset Files


My site is password protected.

I have created a document library on my site with hyperlinks to pdf documents. I have gone to the settings for this collection and removed the collection list of documents from the site search and have unchecked SEO options. However, the files still show up in browser searches if you type key words.

If you have pics, documents, etc. uploaded as assets and linked somewhere in your site, is there any way to remove them from browser searches or password protect them as well? Right now, I only want folks that have entered the site with the password to see these documents and not ALL of the internet.


The solution is not to use the assets library to store restricted access files. You would need to come up with a third party alternative or hosting where you can restrict access. You can’t do it with Webflow’s CDN.
