Sharing Sensei Certificates

By default, only the logged in student who completed the Course can view their Certificate.

However, if you’ve enabled “Learner Profile” in Sensei > Settings > “Certificate Settings”, students will see a “Allow my Certificates to be publicly viewed” option on their Learner Profile. When enabled, Certificate urls can be ‘shared’ and seen by anyone with the url.
