    Hello, there is a request to have a feature to protect uploads folder in next version of Private Only, I’m considering to add this, but can’t promise to deliver it soon

    However for anyone with files already indexed by google
    1. Move your PDF files to another folder so visitors/google see a true 404 error
    2. Create robots.txt and upload it to your main/root/public_html folder of your ftp server

    Your robots.txt content is (e.g you move your pdf files to a new directory name pdf_docs in your main/root/public_html)

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /pdf_docs/

    Thanks for your quick answer!

    I did the following thing:
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-content/

    This should work?

    Also pages on the private website are indexed by Google so on the search results you will see the first line text from the page
