Details of other Users not visible to current User!

Hi All,
In my App, I want to show the details of the users like Name, Image, etc who posted any item like image, article, etc on the app. Just like in LinkedIn, you can see the details of the user who posted an item on LinkedIn. But, currently the app only shows the info of the current user on the posts posted by the current user. The image, name & other details on other posts (Posted by other users) are not visible. Am i doing anything wrong here?

Are you using Row Owners?

Yes, and as I removed it, the issue resolved. But, will it cause any issues if I remove the row owner? Like data security of users?

I’d encourage you to review the Glide Security documentation.

But, to answer your question - it depends how sensitive the data is and how important it is to keep it private. You always have the option of “hiding” data by using filters, but when you use that option the data will still be there on each users device, and it can be discovered if a user knows how to get at it.

Row Owners stops this by preventing data from being downloaded to the users device in the first place. With row owners applied, each users device will only receive the data for rows which they “own”.

So again, it’s really up to you. The best advice I can give you is to review the documentation and gain an understanding of the available options, and then you can make an informed decision for yourself.
