Are Public URLs Really Public?
No. Only the person with the unique link has it (which you can delete/remove at any time). They are non-indexable links -- think of these like a unique Dropbox or Google Drive link.
Are Passwords Required For Public URLs?
No. You can leave the password field blank.

1. Enable the date picker so your viewers can choose their own dates by using the "date_picker=1" parameter. Simply add "date_picker=1" (without the quotes) to the end of any Public URL link: https://app.cyfe.com/dashboards/682/4f1e480ccb8cf101202552286564?date_picker=1
2. Lock the URL to a specific date range and group by method by using the "sdate", "edate", and "groupby" parameters.
P.S. You can use the "theme" parameter to force either the "dark" or "light" theme like this: https://app.cyfe.com/dashboards/682/4f1e480ccb8cf101202552286564?theme=light
