Here are some steps you can take to secure downloadable files in WooCommerce:

  1. Use a secure hosting provider: Make sure your hosting provider has security features in place to protect your website from hackers and malware.
  2. Restrict access to files: Use a password-protected directory or secure download manager plugin to restrict access to downloadable files. This will ensure that only authorized users can access the files.
  3. Use unique download links: Generate unique download links for each customer or order to prevent unauthorized sharing of download links.
  4. Limit the number of downloads: Set a limit on the number of times a customer can download a file to prevent unauthorized sharing or distribution.
  5. Use secure payment processing: Make sure your payment processing system is secure to prevent unauthorized purchases and downloads.
  6. Monitor for suspicious activity: Keep an eye on your website for any unusual activity, such as multiple download attempts from the same IP address, and take action to secure your files if necessary.

By following these steps, you can help ensure that your downloadable files in WooCommerce are secure and protected from unauthorized access.
