How to Stop users to download a Content from Site:

Content on a SharePoint site is usually available for downloading so that users can work on it offline. In some cases, Administrators want to prevent users from downloading content as per the requirement. For Example, you have content that contains confidential client information on site, and you don’t want users to be able to download items and take files offline on their laptops or other devices. As a site owner, you can secure data.

Please find the steps below how to stop users to download the content from site.

  1. Go to Site
  2. Click Site Actions->Site Settings
  3. Under Site Administration->Click Search and offline availability
  4. Select the Check option as NO for “ Allow items from this site to be downloaded to offline clients”
  5. Select OK.


You all set and users can’t able to download the content from the site.
