I have just noticed that when I share a folder with a view only link if somebody accesses that link via a browser it displays my full name to the person with the link. I'm not happy with this and consider it a privacy issue. Is there a way to change it?

 

It could happen with individual files and in apps too, I haven't tested these.

Hi there @steve78957, thanks for reaching out to us here!

 

Just to make sure we're on the same page here, do you use these steps in order to create the shared link? 

 

Also, I'm assuming this happens only when they view the content using a browser on their mobile app, is that correct? If you have some screenshots, feel free to send them over just make sure to truncate your full name for security reasons. 

 

Keep me posted, and we'll take it from there!
