Lightroom Shared Album: Anyone can view?!

When I post photos to my LR album, and I set it to Anyone can view. Is there a chance someone can stumble upon those photos?
I'm asking because I have a wedding needed to share with my customers, and LR album is a awesome way to do it, and I am concerned to set it on Anyone can view it because there are photos of people's families, kids etc. and I donćt know those people.
But the groom wants to share this to his grandma, and when I set it to Invite only LR is asking the grandma to make a new account, and that is too complicated for her.
So if I set it to Anyone can view do I risk someone stumbling upon those private photos of random families and risk a lawsuit or something?
Thanks for clarifying.

Sorry for coming late to the party.  Anything published on publicly accessible sites will be indexed by search engines and thus accessible from web searches. You have no control over this. 

 

To protect sensitive information from unwanted prying eyes, use password protection which is not indexed.  Better safe than sorry.

Hope that helps.

Hi Marko,

 

Thanks for reaching out. We're here to help.

 

'Anyone can view' is to create a public link where anyone with the link can view your album.

The chances of someone stumbling upon your specific album URL, which is unique, are thin and unlikely.

 

You can un-share or hide any previously shared album & you can further customize the privacy in the Shared album settings. Please check this article to learn more: https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-cc/using/save-share-photos.html

 

We hope this helps,

Thanks!

Thanks Sameer my dude, you've helped a lot! Thanks to you and Adobe, now the grandma is able to see her grandchild's wedding photos without me worrying someone will sue me for publishing them. 
Thanks again. 🙂

Look at Adobe Portfolio. It is included in the Lr Plan. This would likely give a better "feel" for your customers.
