Hi Mudassar

You have to have Administrative rights in PRTG to do that. Go to Setup -System Administration - User Accounts.

Create a new User which has only READ rights, There is an option when creating the user "READ ONLY RIGHTS". Tick that and everything is fine.

Or, you create a MAP with public access. Then you can give him/her an URL, on which she/he sees the monitors, without creating a user.
