Protect Yourself!

One thing I can say without any hesitation is: while PW is an awesome community, we are also vulnerable to wandering eyes. DO NOT post any information, you wouldn't normally want a stranger knowing (ie. your first and last name, address, etc). You may trust us who are openly active... but we aren't the only one's who run into what you post here on the boards. Afterall it is a PUBLIC forum... So be careful.


 



  • If you prefer to make your bio a bit more private click on the little pencil button (One thing I can photo 1831621-1)  located at the top right of your post.


*This will allow you to edit the posts.



  • Then select the drop down menu located at the end of your selected post (bottom left) that says "who can view this page?".


 



  • Switch it from "everyone" to "friends only" or "me only", whatever your preference. You can do this for a many or as little posts as you like.


Note: Click on the trashcan (One thing I can photo 1831621-2) to delete bio pages & the arrows One thing I can photo 1831621-3One thing I can photo 1831621-4 to organize them. These same options apply for your photos.

Great post! When uploading pics, you can also select who can view them...and for certain pics (i.e. boudoir pics, especially) it's best to make them "friends only" or "private" :)

This is GREAT advice.  I was using a website the other day called www.peek.com just for sh*ts and grins and you'd be surprised what shows up ladies.


Be aware, be safe, have fun :-)


Great advice Pinksanity! Hope your wedding day was FABULOUS

Very true! It's annoying to blur out info when showing pictures of your invites, return address stamps, etc... but worth the effort.


Not on PW, but I have heard horror stories from other sites where one bride from a certain area would call the vendors/venues/etc. of another bride, pretend to be the person who booked it and CANCEL so it would be available for their own wedding! I can't even imagine!!! Some dates and venues are just really popular I guess? :(
