The files in the upload folder are normally accessible for everyone. With this plugin, files in the upload folder can be protected. Only logged in users can see these protected files. I am using it on WP v 5.6 and it works. Please keep maintaining this awesome plugin!

Love this little plugin, thank you! It's simple, yet very effective, very good integration, no unnecessary bells and whistles, easy to use and explain to webmasters. The info page says the plugin is compatibel to: 5.4.2. But on my 5.5.1 it seems to still work just fine. PS. Add a donate button, this plugin deserves it.
