Re: Account changed to "private" visibility

Hi Aaron,


When your profile is set to private because you haven't earned on Upwork for more than 30 days, the clients can still see your proposals and access your profile through them. Your profile will only be inaccessible from search. 


We've updated your profile visibility so it's now public again.

Sorry, I wasn't implying with my words that I was removed from being viewed if I submitted a proposal to them, but that I wouldn't show up in searches, as you noted. Thank you for your assistance.

Hi valeria,


My profile was changed to private also. Can you changed it back to public?

Hi Lani,


I had a look and it appears your profile is already publicly available.

Hi! My account visibility is also 'private' now. But I have just reached Top Rated status so I believe it could help in finding new contracts.
Could you please set my account status back to 'is visible to Upwork users only'?
Many thanks!
