How Do I Protect My LearnWorlds Videos?

Sharing content will never be 100% protected from copyright infringements. But adding some level of protection from potential violators is a great idea.

As a course creator, LearnWorlds helps do this by using domain-restricted access and allowing you to add the user’s id, email, or logo as a watermark to videos and PDFs.

Add a Watermark to a Video and PDF

To enable watermarks on your videos, you must have selected Interactive LearnWorlds Video Player under Player Appearance Settings.

  1. Open Settings and click School Settings.
  2. Select Copyright Protection.
  3. Choose how you would like to protect your videos and PDFs.
Add Digital Download

There are four options for adding watermark settings to your video.


  • There are four options for watermark appearance. 
  • Display School Logo – Your school logo will be displayed. 

Display School Name – Add the name of your school.

If you select either of the options above, those who see them will know it is yours by the watermarks.

  • Display User Email – This will show the user or student email who is consuming your content. 
  • Display User ID – LearnWorlds adds a unique ID to your video or PDF, depending on who uses it. 

If you select either of these options, you can trace it back to the user who stole your content.

Display User Email


Choose the position you want the watermark displayed. 

For video: To protect even further, you can set the watermark to move around. Do this by checking the box and entering a timeframe.

Size: Select the size you want your watermark to display. 

Transparency: Specify if you want to make your logo transparent using the dropdown and select what percentage of transparency you want.

After selecting the options, click Preview on both the Video Watermark Settings and PDF Watermark Settings to check that you are happy with how the watermarks look. Once you are happy with the watermarks, click Save.

Although adding an extra level of security is beneficial, it won’t stop every attempt to steal your content. For your peace of mind, remember that most people are genuine and want to learn from your content. Do not let a few unethical individuals stop you from sharing your knowledge.
