SmugMug on Android lacks privacy protection

Morning,

A viewer on main Smugmug can not easily see any of my SmugMug folders and galleries
A viewer on Android Smugmug can easily see all my SmugMug folders and galleries.
(NOTE: UNLISTED and PRIVATE are excluded from the above)

I find that the Android app is so open that I see it as a bug. To me this is a break of my privacy. If someone at Smugmug want to know more I can send details to the helpdesk

Regards, Harald

My focus is on digitizing memories

    There is no difference between what a visitor can see on the web and what a visitor can see on the mobile phones. If you would like to hide the folder or gallery from being visible on the mobile apps, you should mark them as Unlisted or Private.

    I do not agree on this. To me there is a difference in the privacy. And privacy items I would prefer to discuss in private. Can I send you a PM with some comments?

    Best regards, Harald

    Of course! I'm always here for you guys!

    The only slightly confusing difference between the Web and the Mobile app is that you can "hide" your public galleries on the web by building a Menu Navigation that only shows certain items. Of course, all of the public folders, galleries, and pages are visible on the /browse page. The mobile apps don't use the menu, so they show everything, just like the /browse page does.
