Are you ready to share your Visme project with a select few, but want to keep it private from the rest of the world? Look no further! In this support article, we’ll guide you through the steps on how to share your Visme project privately, ensuring that your content is only visible to those you want to see it. Here’s how:
If you want to make a published project Private where only people with a link or password can view the content, click on the Share button at the top right of the screen. You then click the Share Privately option on Share Online page.
Restricted to specific people
From the “Share Online” page, click on the Share Privately tab. Then, from the dropdown menu, set your project as Restricted to Specific People which means that only those you invited have access to your project.
Invite people into your project by entering their Email Addresses and clicking on the Send Invite button. The invited members can comment, view or edit your project, depending on the permission setting you’ve selected.
Invited members will receive an email notification that contains a link to your project.
You can also copy
your private URL
and share it with your audience.
Anyone with the link (Using a Password)
From the Share Online page, click on the Share Privately tab. Then, from the dropdown menu, set your project as Anyone with the link and choose the type of access you want to grant to people who have the link. You can either allow them to view, comment, or edit the project.
If you wish to set a password that your audience must use to access the project, click on the Advanced Options tab at the top, toggle the Add Password switch to ON, enter the password, and click the Set Password button. Then, copy your private URL and share it with your audience. They will be able to comment on or view your project, depending on the permission setting you’ve selected.
By Activating the Can Comment switch, your audience can now be part of the creative process without even needing a Visme account! They will be able to anonymously leave comments and reply to threads, providing valuable feedback and insights that can take your project to the next level.

How do Private Visme Projects work with Robots and Search Engines?
If you make your project Private in Visme, it would not be indexable by Search Engines. Robots such as Google would not index your content so if people search for your project, it can’t be found.
Note: If you have a project that your previously had it as Public but you then make it Private, it can take days/weeks for Google to revisit and remove it from its index as a Private project if it is already indexed by Google when it was Public.
When a project is private, only those you give the URL to can view it. If you also make the project private with password protected (an option under Privacy), then only those with URL and password can view it.
