  • Resolved TheArtfulDodger


    I have nearly finished building my 1st course. All is good (except a few minor things), but I wanted to ask about security, meaning what is the best way to secure the course to prevent copying or downloading etc. I am going to do a presentation of the course to a potential client, and I want to ensure that there is absolutely no way they can access it or obtain copies etc..,(you can’t be too careful these days).

    Point me in the direction of any documentation I can read please.

    Any lesson content is inherently inaccessible without enrollment.

    Go ahead and try to access a lesson directly from a private browsing session to see how that works or click the “View as Visitor” button on the admin bar when logged in as an admin. You’ll get redirected to the course screen.

    This is the primary way LifterLMS secures your content.

    As far as preventing users from downloading course materials, copy&pasting cotent, screen capping and recording videos, I can’t say.

    To be very blunt: if you’re worried about these things maybe the internet is the wrong medium for delivering your content because there isn’t a 100% foolproof way to prevent that kind of theft/sharing of content.

    Hopefully the enrollment restrictions prove enough for you!

    Thanks for the response.

    Btw, where can I see ‘view as a visitor’ button? I am using version 3.4.5

    I think you have answered my question adequately. People can copy and paste and use other methods, so as long as the can’t obtain access, this is fine.

    All of my lesson pages have “back to grammar awareness course” at the top of the page under the title. How can I remove it? I have tried but cannot find the settings.

    Add this code to the functions.php file:
    remove_action( 'lifterlms_single_lesson_before_summary', 'lifterlms_template_single_parent_course', 10 );

    The “View as” functionality was added in 3.7, upgrade to take advantage!

    Here’s a doc on the feature:
