I do not want to display my city on my profile, how can i change this? Provine and country is ok, but city is a little too close to home.

Your City and Country are displayed in profile. You cannot hide your City.

Samantha:
You may be confused about the purpose of Upwork.

Its purpose is NOT to provide freelancers with privacy.

Freelancers use this site to promote themselves to a worldwide audience.


So the purpose of the site is essentially the opposite of privacy.

 

Upwork does not offer freelancers the opportunity to hide their city, but if you are interested, you can look into the general privacy settings that Upwork offers. But keep in mind, if you apply to a client's job posting, that client can see everything on your profile page, including the name of the city that you live in. There is no such thing as "using Upwork as a freelancer" and "completely preventing my information from being on the Internet." These are mutually exclusive concepts.

By the way, I live in Tempe.

I only asked to remove the city. Not full location.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to remove a city;
