My profile visibility is "Up work users only" Howeve, I am able to see my full name in a searching engine.  Could you please explain why it is reflecting.  Is this conflict inclusive of the privacy policy or Terms of services.

Hi

 

I would like to confirm that we don`t control Google search results. You can request from google so that this search result is removed. You can submit removal requests through your own Google account

Could you also confirm if your profile visibility was set to public at any time? Thank you.

How long ago did you set your profile to "Upwork users only?"

 

Search engines do not immediately update

 

If it's any consolation: It is not possible to access your account from the link in the search result unless you're logged in:

I takes few weeks for links to update on google after you changed your privacy settings.
