When the document is fully uploaded and converted, you are provided with a direct link to the DocDroid page of your uploaded document, accompanied by a shortened link; the latter will be very useful in case you are mass-sharing the file via a social networking status update. Online social network sharing buttons for Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ are present right next to the links.
If you want to keep access to the document private, you can lock it with a password by clicking on the gears icon. This icon will pop up a window where you can type in a file reading password.
