What is an open access link

Modified on Wed, 19 Apr 2023 at 11:22 AM

Summary: An open access link is the simplest way to provide access to your event for a broad audience. However, it does not allow for the collection of end-user data nor the restriction of the event's access.

Broader concept

An open-access link is a broad and simple way to share the event with an audience without collecting any specific user information, except for the public IP and operating system of their devices. This information allows the platform to geolocate the audience and gather insights on the devices and operating systems used to access the event. Additionally, the link includes a unique token that makes it difficult for uninvited individuals to access the event. Only those who possess the link will be able to access it.
