Any individual who is not a QuickBase employee counts as a license, regardless of their Role.  There are minimum user-license requirements for each plan.
An exception to this is that you are allowed to have a Role which is open to everyone on the internet.  That does not count as a "User" as otherwise you would be paying for say 3 billion licenses. :)

how do you set up this exception role?
You can create a Role  with the appropriate Permissions knowing that the users will be anonymous to you.

Then you go to
Invite new user
Then there is a box where you might type in an email address, but instead you selct the book icon to the left of the box

Then search for the "user" called

everyone on the internet.

It should come up with a hit and select it.

Note that there is a Realm level setting which needs to be enabled to be able to expose an App to Everyone on the Internet.  I believe that it.  If you do not get a hot on that search for that "user" then check that Realm setting.

The Realm setting is under Account Summary and then Account Properties and it is called

Allow Public Apps
