Private vs Public
Your Matterport model starts as Private (no sharing).
To make your Matterport 3D model Public (available to anyone with the link), click the lock to enable Sharing.
You'll notice that the gray Share arrow is now blue and that you can click on it.
Private models can only be viewed by people who are logged in to Matterport Cloud. Specifically, this includes the person who uploaded the space, any account admins, and other Collaborators you've invited for this particular model. For an extra level of security, keep the model private and invite Collaborators to view as needed.
Public models can be viewed by anyone on the internet who has the sharing link.
In terms of search engine visibility, the my.matterport.com domain is not indexed. This means by default the Matterport Spaces you create will not appear in search engine results. However, if you embed a Matterport Space in an <iframe> tag or link to it on a webpage, then when Google crawls that page they will recognize that link and add it to their index.
Choose Which Version to Share
You can share three different versions of the Matterport Space:
- Shows all public details. This is the version that you usually share.
- Hides the "Presented By" and contact info.
- Complies with MLS (Multiple Listing Service for residential real estate) rules regarding external links. Removes branding, removes links in Mattertag™ Posts, and removes VR.
