Laravel - Public Storage Question

Hello there,

I was following an awesome guide on YouTube “Laravel PHP Framework Tutorial - Full Course for Beginners (2019)” and I’ve noticed after we make our storage folder public (storage:link) anyone can freely browse the whole folder /storage and any subfolders etc.

I’ve looked around but didn’t find anyone mention how to disallow users from browsing through the folder.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!
