@Juan Pizarro they are private. You can verify this by going to one of them in a new incognito browser window.

I've uploaded an html file to a card in a private board, but the file is public, is not protected by a token, It's a public long url.

@Juan Pizarro ah yes you're correct, the key/token login information to view the file is essentially embedded in the URL

This behavior happens only with free plans?


If I pay a Business Class plan, my files will be protected by a security token with expire time, etc, not a long public url?

Hello @Juan Pizarro ,

Attachments in Trello have no security token or expiry.  They are essentially very long (random) urls, and protected by the "unguessable" url.

If you need more security, you'd need to put attachment into e.g. Google Drive or Dropbox (or similar).
