Making a SharePoint site public

Copper Contributor

Hi all. I have a site in Share Point online. I want to make the site publicly accessible (so that you do not need a username and password to access it). How can I do this? In the Gear > Site information section, there is no Privacy settings (which would normally allow you to change from public to private). Many thanks.

Microsoft made changes to the SharePoint Online Public Websites feature by removing the ability to create a public website after the changeover date of March 9, 2015.
