MULTISITE PRIVACY PLUGIN is not stopping direct file access

MULTISITE PRIVACY PLUGIN is not stopping direct file access by non-logged in user.
The plugin seems to work fine, if non-logged in users access a web-page. But any direct links to ANY files in the website seems to go through, without authentication.
We have some PDFs that have sensitive information, within the protected website.
Any tips, tricks would be much appreciated.

    Hello Neil , hope you are doing well!

    If a visitor have a direct link to a file, the Multisite Privacy can't protect it. To protect Media files you can try the Membership 2 Pro plugin.

    You can network activate it, so the same membership and protection rules will be applied to all sites. Create a Default Membership, wich will show protected content only to logged in users, and hide it from visitors:

    To protect media files, enable Media Protection add-on, from Membership 2 > Add-ons. From the options, it's possible to change the protection methods, which will hide the real filename and path.

    Hope this helps!
