Who can see the documents I upload?

By default, all documents you upload to DocHub will be totally private which means it cannot be seen by anyone beside you while logged in to DocHub. 

When you upload a file to DocHub, you'll see a Privacy toggle switch which will always be set to Private by default. You can learn more in our article Uploading documents and PDFs to DocHub

To adjust the privacy setting for a document after the initial upload, you can open the one and choose File menu DocHub_UI_-_File_menu_button.png > Permissions and Sharing and click on Edit to adjust it and other sharing options such as inviting collaborators. To learn more, see our article for Share or send documents and PDFs.

Shared Document URLs 

You have the option to publish any of your documents to a URL by changing the privacy setting to Public or by using a Share Link. Any Public documents will appear on your public DocHub page and in online search engines, but the Share Links can only be accessed by someone with the ultra-specific URL. 

Organization Documents

When you upload a file to your DocHub organization, the default Privacy will be set to 'Private' where only Admins, Owners, and Content Managers will be able to view the document (and edit). The other Privacy option is 'Organization Viewable' which allows Agents to view the document. See this article for more information: Organization Roles and Permissions
