living atlas layers in public maps made with Web AppBuilder

I would like to be able to make public maps that show living atlas layers.  Is there currently any way to do this?  Requiring a user login to access a map that utilizes these layers seems counter intuitive to the whole "maps for all" message.  


We are trying to show floodplains on a map that we are making public but no one but those of us with logins can see the data.


So in order for anyone else to see this I have to 1) created a guest user with an internal email 2) login for the first time and reset the just created password (why ESRI why?)  3) put myself, that user, and the user creating the map into a group so we can access the maps and keep them separate 4) pass along user name and password (and keep track of) various "guest" logins.


It would be easier if there were a private, non-user based password protected view or a link accessible but private view.


Or if we could just see living atlas layers in public map.


Any thoughts?  Am I making the miscellaneous guest user process to difficult?  We have about 5-10 of them already taking up some of our 50 seats.
