Which Should I Choose? Local or Online Publication?

You may wonder which publication method should you choose when you are publishing a flipbook. The main different purpose for you to choose the publication method should be the readers you want to share with. If you just want to share the flipbook with readers you know such as your friends or family members, you don't even need to add a password to it and simply output it as a local file for sharing.

However, if you want to publish online for sharing with anyone on the Internet, it would be better for you to password protect the flipbook before the publication before outputting it as a plug-in.

Pay attention that only EaseFlip paid users can add a password to the flipbook. You need to upgrade to be a subscriber for using some features brought by EaseFlip.
