[BigZip] Download Zip folder with password protected
Question
Forge component by Carlos Alfaro

Published on 14 Dec 2020

I want to download the file in a Zip folder, which should be password protected. 

For that, I am using the BigZip Extension. I have added the password in the CfgPasswordSet action, and the zip folder is downloaded with the password-protected file also. But it's asking for the password only for the first time once the zip file is downloaded, while I try to open the folder or file again it directly opening without prompting for a password popup.

What should I do, Can anyone please help!

Thanks,

Hi Pratima,

That has nothing to do with BigZip, that's how Windows (and iirc WinZip as well) deals with password protected files. Once you've specified the password, it remembers it so you can access it without the password. I'm not sure how long it caches passwords, but you're not the only one seeing this behaviour.
