Default visibility preference

You can control the privacy settings of your record by changing the default visibility level of all new works, funding, education and employment items added to your record. This will not overwrite the visibility level of any existing items on your record. 

You can also change the visibility of individual items in your record by using the visibility selector next to each item.

On an ORCID record, only the ORCID iD is always visible to everyone. This enables the record to always have a visible iD so it can be identified. You set the visibility level of all other fields to everyone, trusted parties, or only me. Learn more about visibility settings.
