Account privacy and visibility

Last Updated: Feb 08, 2016 04:07PM EST

Sharing some information about yourself can give other Meetup members a sense of who you are, which can help you build your network and find things in common. But keep in mind, if you use your full name or other sensitive information in your Meetup profile, or any other public page on Meetup, search engines can see it.

It’s up to you if you want to share your Meetup memberships and interests on your profile page. You can also adjust the settings for who message you on Meetup.

What can people see on my site-wide profile?

  •     Everyone (Meetup member or not) can see:
    • Your first name
    • Your account location
    • Your profile photo 
    • Your ‘Member since’ date
    • Your list of other Meetup groups you belong to (if they’re not hidden)
    • Your interests (if they’re not hidden)


What can people see on my group profile if the Meetup is public?

  • If the Meetup group is public, anyone (member or not) can see:
    • Your first name
    • Your account location
    • Your profile photo 
    • Your ‘Member since’ date
    • Your list of other Meetup groups you belong to (if they’re not hidden)
    • Your interests (if they’re not hidden)
    • Your bio and answers to profile questions


What can people see on my group profile if the Meetup is partially visible?

  • Only members of the group will be able to see your profile. Non-members can not access the Members page or specific member profiles. 
  • If you’ve hidden your interests or memberships, they will not be visible to other members in your Meetup
