Files and restricting access

When you upload a file, can you prevent it from being seeing unless you’ve logged in - assume someone uploaded a tax receipt - it generates a url but you don’t want everyone to see it

Since the url has a random component, only someone that has the url will be able to see it. In addition to that, depending on your file adapter, you can also increase the security by either creating a custom route or generating temp urls.

Thanks - ANy examples our there or implementations you can recommend ?

Are files stored in the Database ?

It depends on the file adapter that you are using. Which one do you have?
