How do I remove certain information (add privacy) to my profile?

Your My Profile page allows you to set privacy globally, by specific profile section or by a specific information field. In addition, you can set privacy for various online activities.



  1. First, please log in to your SAA account. If you are unable to log in, please visit our help with the site login.
  2. Hover your mouse over the my Stanford tab and select My Profile.
  3. To configure which information displays to fellow alumni, friends or groups and which does not, click the "Privacy Settings" link. You can access the link at the top of the page as well as on the left navigation bar under My Profile.
  4. The Privacy Settings page allows you to set your profile settings as well as activities. For profile settings, you have the option to set privacy globally, by section or by specific type of information.
  5. To edit Profile Privacy, click on the appropriate Edit button. To edit Activity Privacy, click on the Activity Privacy tab. Select the appropriate audience for the specific type of activity
  6. Remember to click on the Save button at the bottom of each page to save any changes made. Cancel my changes will not save any modifications made.
