Allowing users to view documents while preventing from downloading them


We have a requirement to display documets(pdf, word, excel) on our ASP.NET website but prevent the users from downloading the files. I wanted to check if GroupDocs can help us. Please contact me 404-581-7612 if you can.

Thank you,

"Hi Ajay,

Thanks for getting in touch.

GroupDocs Viewer lets you share documents (PDF, XLS, DOCX, etc.) with users from within your website. We do have Viewer plugin for different .NET based CMSs. In addition, we have API for .NET platform that lets you integrate our Viewer plugin to you existing .NET application. You have the authority to assign document rights on an account and document level (allow/disable Download, print, or text selection). Please register for a 14-day trial account to evaluate GroupDocs app suite. If you are happy with the features, then you can upgrade to one of our paid plans based on your use case."
