Howe-5897 my mother's profile

+2 votes
Hi Wiki folks

My Mum's profile is marked as managed by her and I may have made her the manager originally in the hope of getting her interested. She is 80 and on reflecetion won't access her profile. How do I Weeding-93 her daughter, manage her profile?

Thanks :)

Your profile says your mother is private (as it should be if she is still living), but the profile you linked to is managed by Walter Howe and is an open lock. 

If the profile Walter is Profile Manager for is your mother AND you have a profile for her linked from your profile, the two will need to be merged. 

If the profile managed by Walter is definitely your mother AND she is still living, it needs to be taken off open lock.

Here is the correct profile, Bev Weeding.

If your mother is willing and able, you can get her to log in and make you the manager of her profile. She needs to go to the privacy tab, scroll to the trusted list and click "add as manager" next to your name. Then she can remove herself if she wishes.

Thanks, Deb.  I couldn't get past the invisibility shield. :(

Haha, you have to be extra snoopy to ferret them out sometimes. I knew if she was a "family member" account she probably wasn't unlisted so I peeked at Tanya's contributions looking for her.wink

I am the Profile manager for Edith Howe-5897 that you referenced. If you want to link Edith's daughter to Edith, you can edit the daughter's Profile and add Edith by filling in Howe-5897 as her mother.
