Is DailyStrength anonymous?
Can other members see my email address?
Members can not see the email addresses of other members. When a member receives an email from another member, they can only see the personally chosen member name.
Do you keep my email address private?
All member email addresses are kept personal and confidential. For more information, see our Terms of Service.
Is my password private?
Your password is for your use only. We recommend that you keep your password confidential.
Can I post personal information?
We ask members not to post email addresses, telephone numbers, or any other personal identification on DailyStrength.
Can anyone see my profile? How do I make my profile more private?
You can set privacy options for your profile to control who can view it. You have the option to choose from three settings for your profile page:
Everyone - Allow any visitor to see your profile.
DS Members - Allows only DailyStrength members to see your profile.
Friends Only - Allows only your DailyStrength friends to see your profile.
Those who don't have access to your profile, according to the option you select, will only see your DS avatar and username.
How does profile privacy work with existing journal and/or photo privacy?
Profile privacy may override any privacy settings you have selected for journal entries or photos - when there are conflicts, we're going to go with the more private option. Here are 2 examples:
- If you have set your Profile to Friends Only but you have selected that a Journal Entry can be viewed by Everyone, it will still only be visible to Friends.
- If you have set your profile to Everyone, but a Journal Entry to Friends Only, then your profile will be visible to everyone but the journal will be friends only.
How can I keep my profile from showing up in search results from Google, Yahoo, etc.?
You can use our Profile Privacy feature to restrict search engine indexing of your profile. When you select "DS Members" or "Friends Only", search engines (Google, Yahoo and Bing) will no longer be able to "see" content within your Profile (your journal entries, photos, goals, group membership and your hugbook). However, search engines may still display your username, your avatar and any content you've posted publicly (for example, discussion posts, group content, etc). Also note that changes to your profile privacy setting will not immediately affect any existing search results already available through Google, Yahoo, etc. - search engines may take anywhere from one day to several weeks to update.
Can other people read my journal?
We've added three levels of privacy. You can choose to let everyone view, or just your friends, or just yourself. When you write a new journal entry, choose an option under "Who can view this journal entry?"
Can I change the privacy settings on old journal entries?
Yes. To change the setting on a journal entry, go to My Journals, select an entry, and click on Edit. At bottom of entry, choose an option under "Who can view this journal entry?"
Can other people view my photos?
We've added three levels of privacy for photos. You can choose to let everyone view, or just your friends, or just yourself. When you upload a new journal entry, choose an option under "Who can view this photo?"
Can I change the privacy settings on photos I already uploaded?
Yes. To change the setting on a photo, go to My Photos, select a photo, and click on Edit. On the Edit page, choose an option under "Who can view this photo?"
Can everyone see my RECENT ACTIVITY?
You choose. By going to MY ACCOUNT, you can choose to show your RECENT ACTIVITY to:
- Just My Friends
- Just Me.
