Configure Personal Privacy Settings

Print Friendly and PDF

You can configure your privacy settings from the Profile tab in your personal Account Settings. Any changes you make will be automatically saved.


Start by clicking your profile picture and selecting Account Settings. (If not selected by default, click the Profile tab.) Faithlife divides your profile into five sections to give you maximum control over your data.




Profile Info

The first section, Profile info, is public to anyone on Faithlife. You can add a profile photo, display name, and tagline. Faithlife will auto-generate a unique URL for your profile, but you can alter it in the input box.


Note: All of the information you input in the Profile info section will be visible to everyone on Faithlife. Square images of 500x500px work best for your profile (minimum: 200x200px). 



About You

The next section, About You, includes more granular profile information, including gender, birthday, and bio. The more information you provide, the easier it will be for others to find you and connect with you.




Faithlife takes privacy seriously and puts you in control of your data. Adjust the sliders accordingly for each detail you provide.



  • Me: Only you will see this information.

  • Closed: People who are members of moderated groups that you are also a member of can see this information.

  • Open: People who are members of open groups that you are also a member of can see this information.

  • Everyone: Everyone on Faithlife can see this information.


Contact Info

The third section, Contact Info, manages connection points to other users. Once again, you can adjust privacy sliders for each piece of information.





Visibility gives you control over how public your information is on Faithlife. Adjusting the sliders limits how visible your posts or joined groups are to other users on Faithlife. You can also block specific users by entering names in the input box.





The final section, Account, lets you manage name and login credentials. You can change your email or password from this section.




Note: Some users prefer to use a nickname or an incomplete name (e.g., “Jenna B”) for their public-facing name rather than their full name.
