Is my OnDemand Confluence content available to anonymous internet users?

I'm looking at Confluence at the moment in the aim of using the OnDemand version initially as a proof of concept then moving to a internal hosted instance down the track.

I can't see this mentioned explicitly anywhere and apologies if it seems too straightforward a question, but is a OnDemand instance of Confluence available to anonymous internet users without having to log in?

ie, anyone could access the content in the OnDemand instance (and I guess Google/bots index the pages and present them as search results?)

Hi Gorlaz,

Yes, it's possible to do this by configuring Confluence's permissions to allow anonymous access. You can read in detail how to do this here:

Thanks Michael.

So without enabling that option, my Confluence instance is essentially private and non searchable by Google/bots?

Exactly right :)
