Document Security on LiveBinders

LiveBinders provides 2 tiers where privacy settings are available to protect your content. One tier of protection available comes with the binder itself — it can be set to “private”. The other tier of protection is available through the security settings available with a file's own privacy setting. Below is an explanation of the various levels of privacy you can use in your binders.
