    It took a little while to become friends with BPS Pro, but well worth it. The program offers far more than I expected.
    Need a bit of clarification. The site uses @font-face font types, which means that fonts are stored in a ‘font’ folder on the hosting server. Which .htaccess file should be inside the font folder to prevent anyone from downloading any of the font files?
    Is there a video showing how it’s done?

    The simplest way to protect files in a folder from being downloadable is to add a Deny All .htaccess file in that folder.  Download the BPS Pro Deny All .htaccess file from this folder /wp-content/plugins/bulletproof-security/admin/htaccess/deny-all.htaccess to your computer and then upload the deny-all.htaccess file to the /fonts folder and rename the file to .htaccess.
