How can I hide the has access options for exteranlly shared files on sharepoint

I'm looking at external file sharing on sharepoint, i've sent a link to my personal email address and I can access the link just fine but on the right hand side I have hte option to manage access, is there any way to remove this so that external users can't see it?


Hi David,


Sorry for the inconvenience caused by this behavior.


I tested at my end, when I share a folder or site to external user with view permission, the external user can see the manage access list at their end.  We also tried to give a unique permission of specific file so that external user can only access this file. However, he can access the file root path (Folder) and see the Manage access list.(He can't access the other library or sites contents of this site)  So, It should be a by design setting in SharePoint Online. We are sorry for that can’t be changed for now.
