Turn on anonymous access for a site

Wednesday, April 19, 2017 - by Keith A. Smith

Turn on anonymous access for a site
    •    Open the site on which you want to turn on anonymous access.
    •    On the Site Actions menu, click Site Permissions.
    •    On the permissions page, click Anonymous Access.
    •    In the Anonymous Access dialog box, select the parts of your Web site that you want anonymous users to access, and then click OK.

Turn on anonymous access for a list or library that uses unique permissions
Follow these steps only if you have turned on anonymous access for the site as described in the previous procedure and have granted access to either the entire site or only lists and libraries in step 4 above.
Also, make sure the list or library you want to work with uses unique permissions instead of inheriting permissions from its parent site.

For more information about unique permissions, see Control access to a specific piece of content or, for basics, see What is uniquely secured content?

    •    Browse to the list or library that uses unique permissions for which you want to enable anonymous access.
    •    Click the List tab on the List Tools menu (or the Library tab on the Library Tools menu).
    •    Click the List Permissions (or Library Permissions) button.
    •    On the Permissions Tools menu, click Anonymous Access.
    •    In the Anonymous Access dialog box, select the permissions that you want to grant to anonymous users for this list or library, and then click OK.
