Want to stay in control over your documents even when sharing content over a public link? Try secure view to remove the download option!

@nextcloud Really, an option named "display download link" would be the same, arguably less marketing-friendly, but surely more accurate.

Worth than the lack of security is the illusion of it. I agree that you mentioned this in the article, and this depends on the threat model. But this naming could and will lead users to trust the feature as being "secure", while in fact it is only secure against non tech savvy people, i.e. an increasingly small proportion of potential attackers.


@nextcloud Huh. It seems I was myself deceived by the article. The option is indeed named "Hide download".

Sorry for the rant I guess?
