  4. Customize the shared data pages's share settings.
  5. In the left sidebar, click Ç Shared Data.
  6. Click the title of a shared data page to open the page in a new tab.
People can bookmark or copy and paste your shared data page link and share it. To share a protected version of your results, password protect your shared data page.
