Hi Syed Faraz,

 

Your profile visibility has been reset back to public. When your profile is set to private, your profile is not visible in search results, but the clients can still view your profile once you submit a proposal. For more information, please check out this help article.

Hey everyone, my profile just went to private from public. How can I change it back to public? Tried various methods to shift it to public but failed. Hope to get solution through this upwwork community.

I noticed that I do not come up when I try searching for myself by name (or any other way) when searching for talent. I noticed that my profile visibility is 'locked private' with no way to change it. Is the only way to make my profile visible is to have a paid membership? Does this also happen when submitting a proposal (that a client will not see my profile) unless I have a paid membership?

 

Nor can I add any work history to my profile. Is this work history my own professional work history or my Upwork work history?

You should be able to click on the pencil next to the profile visibility and request it be set to public. 

 

Your work history is the Upwork work history - your jobs on Upwork. 

 

Your employment history is your own work, outside of Upwork.

When I click on that pencil to change visibility setting, my mouse turns into a red circle with a line through it. I cannot change its current setting of private.
