Verify identity when opening a shared file from onedrive

Occasional Contributor

Hi All,


Recently we noticed that, when opening a shared file from onedrive, the browser first asks to verify the identity by typing in the email adress of the person (me) who it's been shared with.

Any idea what setting triggers this?

That's the default sharing method for external users now, I believe. If you want to avoid this verification, share using anonymous ("everyone") guest link.

Hi Vasil,

There are no external users involved. In fact sharing with external domains/people is turned off.
