How to programmatically grant access to private files?
us flag

I was working under the idea that i could use hook_file_download to grant access to private files; but it seems that this hook can only be used to restrict access to files, not to grant access.

I have seen suggestions of other hooks like file_access and file_access_alter; but none of these exist any more.
