How To: Alter Privacy Settings on Profiles You Manage

Posted March 18, 2011 by Geni | 2 Comments

Privacy on Geni is pretty simple to understand. That said, there are a few settings you can customize as far as the private profiles that you manage, so let’s walk through them.

Under the “Private Profiles” section there are two check boxes: Profile Photo and Current Location. If you don’t mind sharing that information with other Geni users, leave them checked. If you’d prefer that they remain private to only your family group, uncheck it.

Under the “Child Profiles” section, there is a toggle switch. If you’re okay with your family editing the profiles of children under 13, switch it to “Our Family.” If you’d prefer to disallow edits for anyone but yourself, switch it to “Only Me”

It’s that simple. Privacy is important, so we always strive to make it as easy as possible to keep the profiles of close relatives safe.
