Shared folders linked to Proton account (not just public links)
Privacy and security are at the core of Proton's mission. Sharing folders through Proton Drive should be no different. A public URL for sharing stops short of privacy and security. A model that upholds privacy and security would be an invite model. Invite a specific person to the folder, if they do not have a Proton account, they can create one. They use this login to access files in the shared folder.
A public URL has zero traceability to who is accessing the data. An invitation to a specific person would allow for traceability of the files in the folder being shared by the Proton Drive customer.
An additional option to select members of an organization in a Business/Professional or Visionary Plan to share a Proton Drive folder with is also in alignment with specific people having access to specific things in the name of privacy and security.
I agree, this would be very important.
Although I think a best option would be to have possibilities for both. To either share for a specific Proton user or set of Proton users, or alternatively to create a public shared link (with both current options, password protected or no password).
I too subscribed to a family plan and was somewhat surprised to see this is not a current feature. Encryption probably makes this a bit difficult to implement, but I guess it might be possible at least if the share to users option is set before encryption/upload starts.
I cannot agree more. This a big big big lack in current Proton offer. I subscribed to a family plan thinking that this feature would be available. I am really disappointed it is not the case!
Hello. I use Notion but don't want to upload my documents inside notion. I want only to create a link to my folders or files and paste it under Notion only for myself, so everytime I click on that link Proton Drive opens and shows me my folder or my file.
More Secure file sharing is when you share a file or a folder by a link only for a Proton member to a valid Proton-Email-Address !!!
When sharing access to a file or folder, access is given through an URL to "pretty much anyone gets the URL".
Could we perhaps have a more secure procedure for sharing access to files "restricted to known (identified, specific) Proton users"
