Profile Visibility - Not Working

On my Profile visibility settings I have set Last Name to be visible to Only Me, but there it is - out in full view of everyone. I thought that Username was the default for Wordpress.

I actually don't want anyone seeing any of my members's First or Last Names. The only name that should be visible is Username.

How do I accomplish this please?

See screenshot showing setting of Visibility (Only me) but it is visible at the top of the page and also in the widget of Members.

    Hi Mary,
    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    It appears that you are setting visibility on primary field of BuddyPress. If yes then its a required special field that BP use everywhere.

    In this case I would suggest you to make that primary field nickname and add two other fields (first and last) from Admin -> Users -> Profile Fields and set their visibility.

    You can see if this field is a primary or not in Admin -> Users -> Profile fields. There will be label (primary) to that field and also you can't delete this field as well (see screenshot).

    Hope that helps! Feel free to post a reply if you need further assistance :slight_smile:

    Best Regards,
