With the changes coming soon for Privacy levels I thought of this. My profile has a lot of potential information about living individuals that are, I feel, important facts about my life. Should we have personal profiles with such biographies be set to the Red Privacy level?

I am talking about member profiles that can not be set to Unlisted.

I have the privacy set so that you can see what I mean but unless told otherwise I will set it to Red no later than 21 May 2018.

Surely, even if you set them to Red, if they are living (or possibly living), they will go Unlisted anyway, such as your father.

I know that Ros, My Question is should my profile be set to Red. Removing the information on others talked about is not a good idea because a lot of that is first hand information that would be lost forever if something should happen to me. I am asking this after getting out of the hospital for a very serious health issue, others in my age bracket have died from the same issues I have.

If you want the rest of your profile to stay more open,  you could move info on living people to the memory box.

Eowyn, I have already moved the information to a place where it will not be lost, except for those of you on WikiTree. Your suggestion would make by biography a much poorer description of the actual facts so for now I will either remove the entire biography or set the profile to Red by Monday.

The only loss will be to WikiTree.

Whatever works for you Dale.
