As a developer with a Pro license I was making use of the same "glitch" to share reports with report "consumers" until the security fix showed up late last week.
To make a long story short, there is no way to let users see reports (securely) without either:
Microsoft has done a "spotty" job of clarifying use case scenarios on how to share, focusing on developer collaboration and access levels that don't take into account that there are report consumers that only need "once in a while" analysis tools. Understanding these has been frustrating for me to learn...mostly by trial and error. Here's a rundown of the different sharing scenarios based on my experience:
That last bit about opening the dialogue is how I choose to engage the organization. I use a lot of easily found SharePoint pages with Secure Embedded reports. Knowing it exists gave report consumers a sense of what was available, but that "Request Access" button pre-established the concept that there were some hurdles to get it.
In short, sharing isn't free (despite a lot of ways to share), but how you choose to share can come with benefits in managing content and communicating effectively with your report consumers.
Hope that helps...good luck!
