How to Set Privacy Settings for Your Google+ Marketing Page

By Jesse Stay

Setting your privacy settings to your needs will keep the important information away from those you don’t want to see it. There may be some elements of your life you want to share — but only with certain groups of people. The same goes for your e-mail address. Thus you’ll want to know how to adjust your privacy settings on Google+.

To change how people see your profile, use the following steps:

  1. Click the profile icon, your name, or your profile image anywhere in Google+.

    The Google profile page opens.

  2. Click Edit Profile.

    You’re in edit mode, which means you can edit any section on the page.

  3. Click the section whose privacy settings you want to adjust.

  4. Edit the section.

  5. Select the circles or individuals (including Public) you want to let see that particular section.

    The options’ appearance varies for each section; in most sections, you can click a drop-down menu.

    Typically you see the following options:

    • Extended Circles

    • Public

    • Your Circles

    • Only You

    • Custom

    If you choose Custom, you can select specific circles and individuals.
