Faster flipbook loading time


Another useful feature is to set the flipbook's privacy. You can choose whether or not your flipbook is private or public, and whether or not a username & password combination should be enabled on your flipbook or whether you'll use IP-Whitelisting to control access to your flipbook.


The final feature is the link/video & SEO where you can add either links and videos, change the title of the page or edit the SEO so Google will be able to find your publication by description, keywords or other text. In this field, you can also overwrite, move or delete a page. 

The last two milestones are for the PRO account which can be upgraded at the UPGRADE/DOWNGRADE field.
