By default our sandbox themes for SharePoint 2013 are not visible for anonymous users. If you want to make your SharePoint site visible for anonymous users, there a few steps that you have to do:

  1. Log into your SharePoint site
  2. Go to Settings > Site Settings
  3. Open Site permissions under Users and Permissions
  4. On the ribbon, click Anonymous Access
