Currently, the feature is available for desktop users only whereas mobile users will have to wait. This feature will be handy when exchanging documents which contain sensitive information when anyone can unjustly copy/paste or otherwise take advantage of your work. However, this may be circumvented with a screenshot or a phone camera picture.

Do you think this feature will be handy for you? Let us know in the comment section below.
