Exporting Reflowable Epub - encryption

Hi,

 

I am trying to export a reflowable epub from InDesign (CC2019). 

 

When I upload it onto Draft2Digital's website it warned that it was encrypted. I contacted them and they sent me the following pic of the export options. There is a security tab. When I export the epub that security tab does not appear (see pics below). Oddly enough, few, if any, of the options are shared, so I don't know how he's exporting the file.

 

How can I export an non-encrypted epub file?

 

Any help would be appreciated. It has to be reflowable, I don't want a fixed epub.

 

Thanks.

 

Mark

I don't think InDesign encrypts Reflowable ePubs.

For what it's worth, the first picture seems to be from the export options for PDF, not the export options for EPUB.

That probably explains why the export windows are so different. Thanks for pointing that out. The bigger problem is determining if Adobe is encrypting the reflowable epub on export and if/how I can prevent that from happening.

As I said earlier, InDesign does not encrypt a Reflowable ePub.

I had the same thing happen today. Did you figure it out? I have no security tab either. I wonder if this is new. It says it only affect Scribd.
