Do I have to download files from Showell to my device in order to use them?

No, it is not necessary to download files from Showell to your device.

When using the native Showell Apps (Windows, iOS, or Android), the files are automatically downloaded and accessible offline within the Showell App. This means you can access your files even without an internet connection.

As an Admin, can I protect sensitive materials from being downloaded by the users?

If you have sensitive materials, that you only want to be accessible using the Showell app (unable to be downloaded/saved to device) by your users, you can turn off the file sharing permissions.

As an Admin, can I block a user from downloading content in its original file format?

By default, a user can download content in its original file format. For example: A PPTX file can be downloaded as a PPTX and converted PDF file format.
Contact Support if you'd like to turn this feature OFF: So the user will then only be able to download the converted PDF.
