Privacy basics

We want your privacy to be respected and your presentations to only be available to you unless you decide to share them with the world. The default mode when you create a new deck is Private which means that only you can see the contents of the presentation.

Even though you already have a link to share with anyone from the moment you create a deck, they won't be able to view the presentation unless you've set it to public or share it with them privately. Instead, they will see the following error page:

Tip: You have to be logged in to view your own private presentations.

Setting a deck to public

1 Changing privacy to public in your Library

A public deck can be viewed by anyone with that presentation’s link. To make your deck public while in the Library, find the toggle with a red lock on it, captioned Private, and press it. You will see an option to change it to Public appear next to it and if you click it again, your deck will become public.

Find the toggle with a red lock on it, captioned Private, and press it. You will see an option to change it to Public appear next to it and if you click it again, your deck will become public.

Setting a deck to private

Once a deck is public, it takes two clicks, or taps, to set it back. Do the same as above, find the Public toggle with a green globe and next to it, and press to change to private and confirm. Your deck will now be private and only viewable by you if you are logged in.

Sharing privately with accounts

You can also share your deck with anyone’s account privately. You can let other users view your deck, edit it, or present it. Add people’s emails from your Library or while editing a deck, in the Manage deck section. If your deck remains private, only the people you privately share it with will be able to see the content. Everyone else will get a notice that the deck is currently private.

1 Add an email in the Sharing toggle

Once you’ve added someone they will receive an email asking them to accept and view your deck. Once they do this, they see your deck in their Library.

3Manage their permissions

You can choose between three levels of permissions for your collaborators. You can let them view – they can use our viewer to see the deck, edit – they can view it and manage its contents, or present – they can present it live.
