Hiding all data
I suggest to hide all inside data (profile, activity, topics et c. et c.) from public access, even from deep links, scans or crawl.
Also, the default configuration should be set this way.
The administrator will expose the data if and when he will see fit.
(ideally, with user consent)
Over the past few releases, there are multiple options developed to hide all of the below fields from the component options.
- Profile fields such as location, age, gender, member since, last visit
- Toolbar menu items such as activity, members list, reputation, leaderboard
I hope these options will help.
