Why does it ask to sign in to see my board even if my board is public?

No matter how I change the settings it won’t let anyone with the link view my board. It just says you need to sign in to view it. I have tried all of the settings and nothing is working. What am I doing wrong?

Easy mistake! 😊 if you need someone to administer or moderate the board, that would be a use-case for inviting them to the board.
