Link Sharing

Create and share links to notes which can then be viewed in any browser, by anyone with a link!

These notes will always appear in your library under Shared Notes

Audio recordings are only available after someone downloads the linked note.

Information on "Notability Account"

In Notability Settings > Manage Accounts, I see an option for creating a Notability account. What is that? Is it related to note storage?

This is not related to note storage. If you'd like to back up your notes, please try Auto-Backup

When you create a Notability account, it'll allow you to share note links with others via the Link Sharing feature. It is not used for anything else.
