I want to make my Sharepoint site visible and available to everyone on the Internet, without the need to have to sign into Microsoft account.

 

I have made this configuration

This site can be shared with anyone, including via anonymous access links

 

but still I can't get it to work. when I paste my site's URL in InPrivate mode in Edge, it asks for login.

@HotCakeX This is not possible in SharePoint Online. Access anonymously is only done through those anonymous access links via "share" functionality in SharePoint. Open/Public sites are not available.

@Beau Cameron 

Hi, thank you,
can I share my site with other people using personal Microsoft account? (@outlook.com)
because when I try to share my site, I get this message: "email@outlook.com is outside of your organization."

my settings are like this in Sharepoint Admin center

What am I missing?

Solution

@HotCakeX Yes you can. That's not an error. It's just letting you know the user isn't a part of your organization. As long as they have a link, they will be able to enter.

Oh thank you, I don't know why I thought it was an error that wouldn't let me proceed. lol
