As an option , would be up for the user, maybe disabled by default. But the steal problem would be present even if one host his works on other hosts or personal websites, so i dont see that as a problem at all. Also, if they really want to steal it, they would sign and do it.

One problem I see with a lot of portfolios on Upwork is that they are not distinctive. They don't convince me that they are the work of that contractor.


Compare this to so many other portfolios I see that genuinely look distinctive. I can tell that the pieces posted by the contractor are uniquely something she created.


When I see a web designer's portfolio pieces and they simply look like screenshots of free template websites that they downloaded, I'm not impressed at all.


I would rather see a portfolio piece that looks like a plain text body of source code that I can examine more closely and see this is something you made yourself, than see some fancy graphics that I don't believe you really had a hand in making.

I'm in agreement with Preston's first statement. It should be noted that as a writer, everything in my portfolio is on the web and in use by clients.  I can certainly understand an artist's diagreement with this attitude if his/her work is used only to showcase styles and such.

-Only show my profile to Upwork users logged in


Why -public if it's not working?

Hi Dmitriy,


I'd like to clarify that profiles using this setting are visible publicly but not all elements of the profile can be accessed by non-logged in users, like Portfolio samples and a full work history.

Hi Ahmad, 

You should be able to attach, and/or link your portfolio pieces to your proposal. If your client is logged-in to his Upwork account, he should be able to go to your profile and review your portfolio.
