How do I remove my public profile from the site?

You may have activated your profile on the site but now don’t want it to be found. Here’s how to make sure it can’t be seen.

A:

We created public profiles to allow users to post and apply for volunteer positions, as well as to create a sense of community on the site. If you no longer want to have a public profile, here’s how you can turn it off.

To keep your profile but prevent it from showing up in search engines:

  • Click on the “Update Your Settings” gear icon on the top right of the screen
  • Uncheck the box that says “Allow search engines to find my profile”
  • Click “Save your settings”

To completely disable your profile from being publicly visible:

  • Click on the “Update Your Settings” gear icon on the top right of the screen
  • Check the box that says “Don’t publish my profile on the website”
  • Uncheck the box that says “Allow search engines to find my profile”
  • Click “Save your settings”
