In the pop-up that appears, click the Gear icon to modify advanced settings. Under Custom Link, enter your desired custom text and click Save. The custom ending to the link should be between 3 and 30 characters and can use letters, numbers and hyphens.

 

  

Additionally, it is possible to password protect a Custom Link. For more on password protecting a Share Link, please see this article.
