Your Privacy

Who can see your personal and contact information?

By default, the viewing of your personal and contact information is limited to members of groups you are in, group leaders, and other registered users who have permission to view profiles—usually those who work with profiles in your church.

However, you can make your information visible to all registered users of your church's Realm website. For more, see Privacy and the Online Directory.

Set Your Privacy Preferences

Control who sees your personal information.

Many find the online directory in Realm invaluable for locating contact information, putting faces with names, and matching children and spouses to names. For various reasons, however, some like to limit who can see contact and personal information. You can revise your privacy settings so this information is limited to administrators or the members of small groups or teams you're involved with. Of course, you can also make your contact information available to everyone with a login to your site. See Privacy Settings.
