Private shares are more secure. The shared files can be accessed only by people who log into a CloudFuze account using an email that the file was shared with, so access is limited.

-Read allows the person to view the file but not edit it.
-Edit enables the person to make changes/edits to the file.
-Co-owner gives the person administrative abilities to share or perform other functions on the file(s).
Share is confirmed and the recipient is notified via email.
After clicking the Share button in the bottom right corner of the pop up, you will receive a message in the upper right corner of the screen that says “File(s) has been successfully shared.”
In the “All Files” and “Recent Files” list the file(s) will also be noted with the icon for Share.
