I have modified existing categories and changed the access from All Users to Logged-in Users. However, if someone knows the exact URL, anonymous users can still download the file. What can be done? Is it a file permissions issue?

No it's not a permissions issue the existing version can address. You might be able to address this with apache .htaccess control.

I will in a future release modify the plugin to use the download class so that you can move the file_repository to a secure path outside of the webroot. I needed to stop the scope creep or It would have been many more weeks.

Thanks. I did more of a search on the forum and found the clever guy who used the .htaccess with the cookie. Boy, what you can do with .htaccess! Yes, the real solution is to place outside of the public_html.

Sounds good. Appreciate the effort. I will make it a point to "show my appreciation".
