Files Only available to students with link, not really safe?

Community Member


I have restricted folder + file access by using the option "Only available to students with link". So the whole folder including files are hidden for the student.



I have added one of the restricted files in my content, the student can open this file without any problem. 

But now my problem, its not very difficult for the student to guess the links for the other restricted files.

The link to the file is /courses/14639/files/43207530?wrap=1

but I can just try other id's, like /courses/14639/files/43207531?wrap=1  and 43207532 etc to open all the other files. When uploaded all together, all the id's are sequential.

Are there safer ways?

kind regards
