How do I control if my email address is shown or not shown (publicly) in my profile page on SU?

  • By the way, your real name isn't shown either. Not that it matters in your case, but you can check in a private browser window just to make sure.

  • @slhck - What do you mean by '...check in a private browser window...'? Would this be if I logged out from SU and then viewed my Profile page? Commented May 11, 2013 at 22:07
  • Yeah, like visiting your profile from (anonymous) user's point of view.

Your email address is never shown publicly.

Only moderators and Stack Exchange staff can see what it is. It is also not shown by default and instead shows:

email (click to show)

However, this only applies to the email field. If you enter your email address in the About Me section it will be publicly visible.
