I created a "share with anyone" anonymous link to send to users outside my organization, and I pasted that link into an email. However, if a recipient of that link has a Microsoft account of any kind, and they open my link in a web browser, they are still prompted to log in with their Microsoft credentials. (If they don't have a Microsoft account, they are not prompted to log in, and instead are taken directly to the file/folder I have shared.) Is this expected behavior? Is there a workaround? This creates confusion for some of my recipients.

It should not prompt you for a login. I haven't had issues with anyone links in awhile.
