New Profile Visibility/Privacy Levels

On May 02, 2023 we released the ability for dharmaMatch users to set the visibility/privacy level of their profile during registration - and allow them to to adjust their level under Account Settings.

What Profile Visibility/Privacy Levels Are Available?

Broader visibility means more exposure and traffic to a profile page - but this needs to be balanced with a user's desired level of privacy. Below are the visibility/privacy levels now available:

PUBLIC - Profile is viewable to all (including unregistered users) and may appear directly in public search engines (e.g. Google).

PROTECTED - Profile is viewable to all (including unregistered users) but will not appear directly in public search engines (e.g. Google).

PRIVATE - Profile is viewable only to registered, logged-in users.

HIDDEN/SUSPENDED - Profile is temporarily hidden on our site, not included in site searches or our matches email, and is unviewable to all.

NOTE: A profile normally cannot be placed into HIDDEN/SUSPENDED state if it is in an active, paid Gold Membership period, or under review by one of our admins. Please contact support in these cases.

Prior to this change, all profiles were at the PROTECTED level. This is now the default level.

Where Can I Adjust This Setting?

You will find the ability to adjust this value in the following locations:
