Please could someone tell me how I can "hide" people on my tree before allowing others to view it?
Many thanks, Sylvia

Hi Sylvia

You can hide living relatives (or anyone on your tree that does not have a death date entered) by clicking on ACCOUNT (at the top right of your page)

Then scroll down to "Hide Living Relatives"
Click on the arrow which will then give you a YES/NO option.
Select Yes and save.

Apart from this feature, I don't think you can pick and choose who sees what on your tree if you have granted them permission to see it.
But at least by choosing the "Hide Living Relatives" function it will give you a measure of protection.

Brilliant. Thanks very much for your help.

yes, but the living relatives show up in the iindex whether they are hidden or not and whether the OP has access to your tree or not.
