I've some Google docs and want to send an URL to people WITHOUT Google account, so that they are able to read/view this document.
Viewers should not be forced to have a Google account.
I know about the "risk" that this link can be forwarded or published somewhere in the Internet.
Is this possible and how?

You can open the document in google docs  Select "Share" on the right hand corner. And make it viewable to public, this does not require them to have gmail account.

THanks,

Yes, but I do  not want to make it viewable to the public, the doc should be viewable to s specific group of people - to which I want to send an email with this "secured" link: something like google.com/hafvnasmz6usdahgfajgfajhgsdajfgsa

Yes you can select the option

"Any one with the Link" and then share the link across, without making it public. Hope this helps.

Thanks,
