[resolved] Privacy (3 posts)

    Hi

    Thanks for taking a great initiative.

    I'm a bit concerned about the privacy of the attached files. Will only the sender and receiver be able to see them?

    Took a quick look at the code. It seems that the plugin uses the default WP upload directory to store the files. If this is the case, then I worry that any user with access to the media library would be able to get the file.

    Please advice.

    Cheers

    Hi Mort3n, take a look at my Gist. It makes sure only people in the conversation can download the file!

    Hi Mike_Cowobo,

    Kudos to you for sharing!

    Hopefully, this will be native to the plugin at some point.

    Have a great weekend :-)

    Cheers
