How can I prevent users from fetching remote URLs dynamically using my Cloudinary's account?

Cloudinary allows you to define a list of domain names that remote image fetching can work against. This means that you can add your site's domain to the list, effectively limiting Cloudinary's fetch only to images from your website. This option is available in the settings section of our management console.

    In our case we are transforming image from varied sites and have no control over it. The transformation is dynamic URL kind.
    How can I prevent scammer using my cloudinary cloudname and using this service for free while I pay the bill?

    Hi Gour,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    In case someone fetch your images it wouldn't count as your bandwidth.
    If you want to avoid other user to transform your images on-the-fly, you can enable Strict Transformations on your account. more information can be found here:

    Thank you,
