Privacy and Security Question: Where can I go to change privacy settings? I tried the 'edit bio' section but I
didn't see any options. The reason I ask is because I did a Google Search for
myself and all my personal information shown on this site was readily available.
This included phone number, address...everything. This is not acceptable for a
ton of security reasons. Please let me know how I can change this.
Answer: An individual member cannot reset the privacy options. This has to be done by a
"back-end" administrator for all members of a group type. Currently the privacy
settings are set to "open" which means that the profile information is only
available to other members of the community. In other words, your information is
not available to the general public but is available to any logged member of
