Uploading and sharing confidential information can be scary. What if the information is leaked? How do I prevent people from downloading and distributing confidential documents? These are all important questions to consider when sharing confidential documents. Today we are announcing a new Document Watermark feature to give you more control over your information and provide a way to track documents after they are downloaded.
Document Watermarks automatically insert a Watermark with the user’s email, date and the word Confidential when a user views the document online or downloads. If a user has download permission, the user will download a protected PDF that includes the Watermark. Administrators and Moderators will still have access to the original documents.
Viewing Documents Online
When viewing documents in a Workspace with Watermarks enabled, the file preview automatically displays a watermark on every page.
When downloading documents, the user gets a protected PDF with the watermark instead of the original file. Administrators and Moderators in the Workspace can download the original file without a watermark.
How do I enable Watermarks?
To enable Watermarks in your Workspace, click the Settings icon in the top right next to the Workspace name. Choose the Security area, and click Enable Document Watermarks.
