Best content protection going!
By , for WP 4.2.3

Everyone has this problem, you want to actually truly hide images or pdfs or other binary files and frankly, wordpress is terrible at this.

Not anymore, Media Vault nails it.

It takes a little bit to get in the groove of how it works but once you experiment with it for 10m you will be happily protecting all of your content!

I use the custom role type hooks to do specially checking before I provide access which has been fantastic since we do a ton of custom theme and wordpress application development.

Well worth it.

I like the plug in
By , for WP 4.1.1

I'm glad that I tried this plugin! Its nice to know that you can click a button and all uploaded files to wp-content/uploads will be secured as they upload. Its also nice to have a selection option for files already in the library. My Zip files and mp4 files can be protected using another plugin and I can restrict these types of files from being viewed by different membership levels for each page I protect but before I found this plug in... uploading to the library was not secure! All anyone has to do is just access your wordpress library and there is the photo or video! So thanks so much for that and well... I am giving you an excellent review!
(There is always a but)

In my case, I have different levels of members and each level can view different photos. It sure would be nice to be able to integrate those levels into the protection scheme. As it stands now, all you have to be is a "logged on member" and doing so... level 1 members can view the files available for levels 2, 3, 4, ect. That is the only downside I have seen. Other than that... great plug in and so nice to be able to trust it... it seems like everything else wordpress related often has an issue and waking up the next morning and turning on my computer to see what exploded overnight is always an experience.

Was able to create my own custom rule for my client profile pages documents, using my own log in rules. Now search engines don't index these files, and redirects to a 404 when not logged in.

Hi,
By ,

I want my files only accessible to myself(admin), not for other admins, does this plugin allow me to do so?

Sometime, I have to hire developer to do some work for me, I don't prefer they can access my files.

Please update me...
Thanks a lot!

Most Excellent plugin, should be standard to WordPress!
By , for WP 3.9.1

This is a rare plugin that simply and genuinely protects files of your choice such as .doc .pdf .jpg to allow access to specific users.
If you are looking to securely control access to private files, then this is the plugin for you! Thanks so much to the developer for this gem of a little plug-in!
Although I had a little technicality to overcome (I think mainly due to my WP install being in a sub-directory folder) I am so pleased to have this plugin working now! Hope this plugin keeps getting updated too, I will support!
