Does sharing Figma files require client to sign-up?

So I’m reading here in the community that clients do not need an account to view shared files…

but when they go to view, they’re asked to login /create an account with Google or with an email.

So which is it?

For a simple demonstration of your work, clients don’t need to login/register. But for clients to be able to edit/export/comment, they need to have a Figma account.

Sorry for the late response. Thanks…much appreciated.
