I have made my map package public but it still looks for a "sign in" in ArcGIS when I try it in any browser:


Any suggestion?

I suspect your organization has disabled anonymous access, as such when you provide someone a link to a publicly shared item, you need to remove your org from the URL. I can access your item here:


Note the lack of capeporal.maps in the URL.

See this in the help

Share public items when anonymous access is disabled

If your organization has disabled anonymous access, only members can access the organization's website. However, you can still share the organization's public items by sharing the item through the public URL (https://www.arcgis.com), instead of your organization's URL (for example, https://yourorg.maps.arcgis.com).

See question/answers for Use Arcgis.com map package as a web map?.

Basically, a map package requires some form of a subscription, whether it is opened in AGOL or in Desktop. You will need to share services publicly in a map vs a map package to not require a subscription.

Anyone can upload a MapPackage and share it like a simple file (which has it's place for some workflows) but if you want ESRI to host and publish the contents of that package as a service (tiles, feature services), you'll need to get a subscription.


Packages uploaded to ArcGIS Online cannot be added to ArcGIS Online web maps. To make map packages available for web mapping applications and clients such as ArcGIS Explorer Online and ArcGIS for iOS, you need to publish your data as map services using ArcGIS Server.
