What's the best way to hide the URL from the user/browser task bar? The only way I can get the link to work for a customer is to select the "Assets have public URL", which I really would prefer not to.
Even though the link to the files are on a protected My Downloads page surrounded by If License, it wouldn't be hard for a knowledgeable internet user to start guessing other file paths. I already have the filenames closely related, but not exact to the product title and the products are in a subfolder by entry id.
A preferred way would be to have the product file directory be above the web root, but I can't seem to find any way to do that with the plugin as it is. Am I missing something?
I suppose I could just make my download folder a string of 30 random characters so at least you can't see the full URL in the bottom of a browser as it would get cut off. But a smart user could still copy the link to the clipboard.
I see there is the Internal Assets plugin that looks to do what I want, but it's based on User Permissions. So I assume I would have to write a plugin that assigns a user permission to a file once they get a license generated, but it would be nice to have that feature be a part of the Digital Products itself.
Any other options?
