Possible? Hosted Feature Service with named user "local editing/sync", Public read-only

We would like to have a Hosted Feature Service (HFS) that we can have named AGOL users bring into ArcMap and do the "edit locally" and "sync back to server" workflow. However, we also need that HFS to be viewable as read-only to the Public.


Is this possible?


We've tried to set this up, but the only way to do the ArcMap local editing/sync thing is to make the HFS have the "Enable Editing" option turned on. And when you have Editing turned on with the HFS being available to the Public, then the anonymous Public can edit the data inside the HFS, which is not desireable. If you turn off Enable Editing, then we can't do the local editing/sync workflow.


At this point, the only workflow that works is to have the GDB stored locally, permanently, and publish it out/overwrite the existing HFS with "Query" being the only capability checked, when we have updates. It works, but it's a one-way workflow, which we were hoping to avoid.
