provisional patent number confidentiality

I gave my PPA number to a potential lisencee. But I did not give them the application or anything more.
Can they view my PPA. I thought that only I can view it through private PAIR. Is that correct?
Plus I have recently filed a full patent based on my PPA. When my patent is published is the PPA also published or available to be seen. How about when my patent is granted
this is a great board. Thank you for starting this - I learnt so much

They cannot view your provisional patent application.   If you have access to private pair, you can view it online.   You will need a digital certificate from the USPTO.
You mean you recently filed a non-provisional patent application, not a "full patent."   That implies you have been granted something, and you have not.
I have not looked at this in a while, but I do not remember being able to access a prior provisional patent application from public pair once a non-provisional patent application is public, however, I would image it is in some way accessible.
