In this tutorial I will teach you how to protect your SWF file, so that people can't download and import it. NOTE: This tutorial works for Flash 4 and 5, though the menus may look slightly different.

  1. Open up flash and go to File > Publish Settings as shown below.
  2. Once the Publish Settings box comes up, click on the middle tab labeled "Flash". Check off the box that says "Protect from import" and click ok.

This comes in handy if you want your SWF to be downloaded on to peoples computers to view. You could also create a projector file, but those are much bigger in size than the raw SWF.
