You can share files with anyone, even non-MangoApps users, by getting the public link to any file. Once you get the link, you can send it by email, Facebook, Twitter, instant message, social networks — wherever you want. You can share these links with anyone, even if they don’t have a MangoApps account.

Important

You should only share files that you have the legal right to share with others (for example, documents, photos, software, music, and videos that you personally created and per your company guidelines). You do not have the right to share files unless you own the copyright in them or have been given permission by the copyright owner to share them. Purchasing or legally acquiring video, music, eBook’s, or software does not give you the right to share that material with third parties over the Internet.

If you have any doubts about whether you have the legal right to share certain files, you should not share them. By using the public sharing features you represent that files placed in those folders do not violate MangoApps Terms of Service and that you own all copyrights to them or have been given permission by the copyright owner to share them.
