The Secure View feature lets users share confidential documents while restricting the actions available to recipients to prevent abuse.

It is a made available through the integration of ownCloud with Collabora. If enabled, users can set limitations on files and folders like preventing copying, downloading and editing. The documents  shared in this way never leave the server, rather, Collabra streams the view to the browser, so there is no way for the recipients to extract the original document. Files are watermarked for printing and exporting to PDF for deterrence and traceability, if printing and exporting to PDF are allowed. 

The feature reduces the pain involved in granting select contacts access to view confidential documents, think virtual data rooms for M&A due diligence.
