I am unsure if I am happy or disappointed to see that another freelancer is having the same issues. There is NOT a link available to change back to private (as the "help" box says) on my profile settings..the options are greyed out and cannot be selected; and when I attempt to open a ticket I am unable to submit the request as the "submit" button seems to do nothing. 

 

Just as the OP says, I have been actively looking, have active interviews, and three ongoing contracts which provide intermittant work. Perhaps the justification for changing someone's setting to private should be reconsidered by UpWork to include only those who have a lack of activity rather than a lack of earnings. I can forsee this being a regular problem for a vast number of freelancers. I am also concerned that the "private" setting will reduce the number of Upwork invitations and notifications from Talent Specialists.

Hi Amanda,

 

I checked and your profile visibility has been reset for 30 more days. 

 

Thank you for your feedback.

Can I also get my profile visibility to public, I am currently on contract and this kind of feature is not really good, 20% is on upwork on my earnings and this is kinda disappointing.

Hi Anna Lian,

 

 

Please go to Find Work page on your account and use the options listed in a pop-up message when you click on your visibility status to set your profile back to public.

Hi Anna Lian,

 

Please use one of the three options/links on the left side of the pop-up window in order to update your profile visibility to public.

As of the moment, I prefer using basic(free) plan, If my reputation is good enough to get clients, then I'll definitely subscribe to a monthly plan, though how can I do that if my profile is automatically set to private right?

 You can do it the same way most freelancers do, by sending proposals to clients. Having your profile set to private in no way impacts that process--it just means that clients searching freelancers to send out invitations won't find you.

I have the same issue. I have not used my account yet. My profile has been set to Closed /Private by upwork.There is no link to change back to active or public. When I click Customer Service it just takes me to the help page and nothing happens. Please Help.
