How to Grant anonymous access to site collection or site page at SharePoint Online

Today I am writing an article about “Grant anonymous access to site collection at SharePoint Online”, as we are knowing SharePoint site can access using external users.
If our customer required, they need to access the site collection or site page from user who is not eternally added. When we enable anonymous access to the site collection to browse the entire site with appropriate permission.
So to perform this action to site collection or site page follow the below steps:
  • First login to the site collection to enable anonymous access, For enable to the site collection first we need to enable external user access using SharePoint Online portal.
  • Select SharePoint portal page and click on sharing option on the left side of the screen and enable external users must accept from share invitation, see below screen shots and click on ok
  • Now on the site collection page, select site collection and click on sharing and select allow sharing with all external users and save the same see below:
  • Once share option will be enabled an e-mail is sent to the external user which signs in with a live-ID or another office 365 account.
  • Now go back to the site page or site collection page, and select share button on the top right side option and share with external users and assign the permission by clicking on the show options.
  • Now select permission level and share the same page, email will go to shared users email id.
  • Another method is also available see below:
  • Once all set when an external user have accepted your invitation you can see them in the SharePoint group you added them to.
  • Now click on Go to Prashant Demo site and click on the same, this will redirect to office 365 page, here assign your Microsoft or other Office 365 user account.
  • See the screen and enter your email id and password and wait for sometime till you will be able to access the site collection or site page on the browser.
