How to Protect File Attachment Pages in the Media Library

Should you protect file attachment pages in the media library? If you’re uploading files directly to the WordPress Media Library (instead of using the AccessAlly Protected Content feature) adding tag-based protection helps prevent users from seeing content they have not purchased.

Step 1: Upload your file.

Visit your AccessAlly site, and go to Media > Add New and upload your file.

Step 2: Once it’s uploaded, click on it in the library to open its settings
