Embed Protection

The latest Publuu function called Embed Protection is designed to give you total control over your flipbook’s sharing options. Thanks to this function your flipbook will only be accessible through your website. It won’t be possible to embed it on any other websites or share it via direct link.

Embed protection can be a perfect solution for those who:

  • Want to protect their highly sensitive content,
  • Wish to sell the access to their flipbooks,
  • Want to restrain who can view their flipbooks.

So, if you’d like to learn how exactly embed protection works and how to apply it to your flipbook, please read this guide.


Embed protection is available only for Optimum, Professional, and Premium plan subscribers. If your subscription plan is Basic, please upgrade it first to use this function.


How does embed protection work?

But if anybody tries to access your flipbook outside the, for example via direct link or any other website that hasn’t been added when activating the embed protection, he’ll see the following notification:


If you add also and to, the flipbook will be viewable on these three domains, including all their subdomains.

Thus, simply speaking embed protection blocks accessing your flipbook on every site except the ones of your choice.
