Choose expiration and permissions options for Anyone links




We've decided to turn on expiration for Anyone links in the SharePoint admin center after 21 days but before we do that I'd like to know if the change has an effect on files that are currently shared? Will they also expire in 21 days or will only files shared after this change expire in 21 days?


Thank you.

Hi @Tomas_S,


Turning on expiration will apply to links that were already created. Hope that helps!
