Amazon S3 account-level block public access now extends to Lightsail buckets

Amazon Lightsail Object Storage provides you with the ability to store your static content such as images, videos or HTML files that can be used for your websites and applications. Effective immediately, the account-level block public access setting in Amazon S3 applies to buckets in the Lightsail object storage service. We are making this change to improve the security of all of your buckets; whether they are in Amazon S3 or in Lightsail. Adding S3 block public access (BPA) settings to your account protects you from unintentionally exposing data in your bucket to the public internet. When account-level BPA is enabled, buckets and objects become “private” (not accessible to anyone on the internet), regardless of the bucket-access permissions currently configured for those buckets and objects.
