Private Database Document

I have created my own private member pages, and only member can view the content of that pages. In one of those pages I have defined a button to open a document when member opens this document it takes him to another page to show the document. However I have discovered that anyone who copies that URL will have access to the document, which I don’t want.

How can I make this URL private to it’s corresponding member? or maybe I can protect it with password?
