WordPress Tutorial: How to Change Your Privacy Settings

August 17, 2019


Hi, and welcome to WordPress.com. This video will show you how to change
the privacy settings on your WordPress.com website or blog. There are three privacy options for your
WordPress.com site: Public, Hidden from search engines,
and Private. To change your privacy settings,
go to My Site and Settings and look for Privacy. If you set your blog to Private,
only users who’ve been invited to the site to view or to contribute
will be able to access it. You can invite users under My Sites,
then on People and Add. If you set your site to Hidden
from search engines, it does not guarantee your site
will not be indexed by search engines. If you’re not sure if this is what you want,
we recommend keeping the default public settings, so your site’s content
will always be searchable. For more tips and tricks,
visit the WordPress.com support site.

Only registered users can comment.

One needs to go to "My Site – "MANAGE" – then "Settings." A minor thing, but that's the actual steps to get to the Privacy setting (at least for me). TXS, Lou
