Hi Members,

I have a question, I am offering a free ebook when someone subscribes to my email list and was wondering if there is a way to automatically assign passwords once a subscriber receives the welcome email? Do I have to manually assign a password to each person who receives my welcome email? I appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

Re: Create Automated Passwords


Hey there @recana5; thanks for joining our Community!


I'm not sure if that's the case, but are you using shared links to point to those files of yours when sharing them? 


If so, you could add a password to the links themselves or even set an expiration date or disable downloads; always according to your needs that is. 


In case you had something else in mind, please elaborate a tad so we can advise further, Rick.
