Read only user


Hi !Friendica Support

yesterday i started to wonder, if there is a way to enable access to restricted pictures on my account to somebody just for checking out pictures of kids and so on.

After thinking for a while i found out, that having read only user with fixed password might be the way to let grannies and aunties to let them check out my kids without compromising security.

Is there any way to achieve this in Friendica?

Thanks guys

I think Nextcloud might be a better solution for this use case. There you can upload your images and then share the directory via link and additionally protect it with a password.

That might also work, but i still think Friendica might be good enough for this use as well if user role management would be possible. Not sure, if it is though..

Also, it's not just images, but also statuses, fun talks and so on.. I guess someone could find more use cases for this 😀
