Hi to everyone,
I have a question. Are there any settings that allow me to share files/folders with my friends just for reading them, and with no the ability to download them to their device?

Re: Share/Download settings

Hey @thilaZO, thanks for posting your question here!

You can share items for viewing purposes either as a shared folder with view-only rights, or as a shared link

If you don't want them to download the content and you've sent it as shared link, you can disable downloads

However, this is available currently to Professional and Business accounts. 

Could you check the sort of account that you're on by going to your Plan tab?

Let me know what you find, cheers!
