Privacy Settings

Your Mighty Network has three different privacy options available. You can change the privacy level of your Mighty Network anytime by going to Network Settings > General Settings and scrolling down to the section called Privacy, Search, and Invites

Here's a quick overview of how each option works.

Public
Anyone can see your Mighty Network, the members (including their profiles), and their posts. Also, anyone can join your Mighty Network. All posts and comments within your Network can also be easily shared out via a link. Search engines like Google will index your landing page and the content inside your Mighty Network, unless you change the Search Indexing off in General Settings.

Private
Anyone can find your Mighty Network. However, only invited members can see posts, activity, and other members. If a link to your Network or a link to a post in your Network is shared out, only invited members will be able to see that link once they are signed in. People who are not members will need to request an invitation before they can join. Search engines like Google will only index your landing page, not the content inside your Mighty Network.

Secret
With this setting, only invited members can find your Mighty Network and see posts, activity, and other members. A secret Mighty Network cannot be discovered within Mighty Networks and there is no option for a prospective member to request an invitation to join from your landing page. Keep in mind that when you select to make it "Secret," your Mighty Network will also not be available via search in the Mighty Networks mobile app. You and your members will need to open up your Network from a direct link on the mobile web in order to sign in the very first time you log in. Search engines like Google will not index your landing page or the content inside your Mighty Network.

You can adjust your privacy settings anytime by going to Network Settings > General Settings > Privacy, Search, and Invites

Privacy Settings with Network Membership Plans

If your Mighty Network has active Network Membership Plans, people can gain access by purchasing plans. Everything within your Mighty Network is behind a paywall — including posts, events, member profiles, and member activity. Anyone can sign up for a free trial (if you have one enabled) or pay to join your Mighty Network, but they won't be able to access content or see members until they've joined. Search engines like Google will only index your landing page, not the content inside your Mighty Network.
