How secure are file uploads?

Updated 4 months ago

Using the /uploads endpoint, any files you upload will be assigned a unique GUID.

Example: 6586DD62-F6CB-4D87-A36C-6DC0524ACA8C.pdf

Anyone with access to the file URL will be able to open the file.

This does not mean it is insecure. The GUID filename assigned is extremely hard to guess and automatically gets deleted 30 minutes after being uploaded.

If you still have security concerns, our endpoints allow the use of security tokens. You are able to send us privately accessible files from your own server with a temporary security token. This allows us to access the file without allowing access to anybody else.
