    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,

    Hi,

    I would like to know how long is this supposed to take to apply the domain restriction for fetching images ?

    Thanks

    Hi Jean-François Labbé,

    Domains restriction should take place immediately.

    Note that already cached URLs are still available even after restriction setting.

    Thanks,

    Yakir
