Privacy tab


Admins can configure privacy settings and apply them to all member profiles at one time in the Global Privacy settings. This article provides instructions for changing the privacy settings for individual members.

Individual members can override global privacy settings within their profiles. If you don't want members to be able to override your global privacy settings, you can lock the privacy settings for individual data items.

Note: The term "public" refers to anyone who is not a member of your organization and anyone who may view your website without logging in. Examples of "public" users include non-member event attendees or casual users who discover your website while browsing the internet.

Admins: Changing a member's privacy settings

You can change the privacy settings for individual members without affecting the settings for other members.

To change the privacy settings for a particular member, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Contacts module and display the contact's record.
  2. Click the Privacy tab.
  3. Click the Edit button to enter edit mode.
  4. In the Profile access section, you can control access to this member's profile. If you uncheck the Show profile to others option, then the member will not be listed in the member directory, and visitors will not be able to jump to the member's profile by clicking their name within the directory.
  5. In the Show details section, configure the member's privacy settings
  6. When you are finished adjusting the member's privacy settings, click the Save button in the top left corner of the screen.

Members: Changing your own privacy settings

Members can change their privacy settings in their member profile. To change your privacy settings, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your WildApricot account. 
  2. Click View profile - or click on your name - depending on the website's design.
  3. Click Privacy.
  4. Click Edit profile.
  5. When are finished making changes to your privacy settings, click Save.

Privacy on blogs and forum posts

Normally, blog topics and forum posts will identify the author using their first and last name. If the author is not a member, or if the author is a member whose profile has been hidden – the Show profile to others option within their privacy settings is unchecked – then they will be identified as Anonymous. If both their first name and last name are hidden to the current visitor, they will be identified as Anonymous member.
