Questions about own firefox sync server

Hello. I just set up a self hosted firefox-syncserver on my homeserver.

I created a virtual host on nginx which looks something like this: firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com and have a mariadb database as the backend. In about:config on firefox, I then set the identity.sync.tokenserver.uri to https://firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com/1.0/sync/1.5.

Everything seems to work fine, but I still have some questions which I did not find an answer to online.

   Since I have this public accesspoint for my syncserver now, can not anyone just use it? What stops them from using my url (https://firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com/1.0/sync/1.5) in their about:config?
   What is the SYNC_MASTER_SECRET for which I set to a 256-bit random key?
   When I navigate to https://firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com/1.0/sync/1.5 in my browser, why does it say {"status":"error","errors":[{"location":"body","name":"","description":"Unauthorized"}]}

I would really appreciate a good answer, as I could not find anything good about these points online.
