Dataset security for Publish to web (Public)

Hi, I am after some advice for a report which will be published to the web public (as in anyone can view it).

 

The report will have exporting of data disabled as well as visuals having the header icons disabled. Is it still possible for someone to see the underlying dataset?

 

More on this particular dataset.

The dataset potentially could contain personal info. Names, postcodes, other details. However the visual just presents a count of some of these values. No visual contains any personal information. But its present in the dataset. Reason is internally a the report is used by operations to peform actions on a granular level, but a version for the public is just high level info (Postcode is modelled up to a region).

 

I know using the browser developer tools its possible to view the schema and metadata on the dataset. But not finding much about if the dataset itself is accessible.

 

Thanks

@danny_oneill I'm not aware of any way to access the underlying data in a Publish to Web report. You can test it out using the Quick Measures Gallery or Data Stories Gallery.
