Your privacy is important to us, and we’re committed to providing you with choices about what information you would like to share with other Pacer members. Your personal data including gender, year of birth, weight, height, blood pressure is only visible to yourself. Your public profile consists of your nickname, avatar, location, posts, activities, groups, goals, challenges & badges and routes. You can manage what to share with other Pacer members through the following in-app privacy settings. Tap the headlines below for detailed instruction on privacy control:
Set your account to private means other users must send a request to follow you. Users that are not your followers will not be able to view your profile page details. The following screenshots show the difference between what non-followers see when they land on the profile page of a public account and a private account:
To set your account to private, please tap your avatar (in the top left corner) > Settings (at the bottom) > Privacy Settings > Tick "Follower" in the "PROFILE PRIVACY" settings section.
You can control who sends you direct messages on Pacer. Please tap your avatar (in the top left corner) > Settings (at the bottom) > Privacy Settings, and in the "ALLOW DIRECT MESSAGES FROM" settings section, you can select "Everyone", "Only people I follow" or to choose "Disable all private messages".
By default Pacer limits messages to "Only people I follow."
Set your goals to private means other users, including your followers, will not be able to see your goal check-ins and related posts. You can set the goal to private when you add a new goal (screenshot below). Click here to learn how to add a new goal.
You can also change the goals you added from public to private. Please see the following screenshots.
There are three types of groups, public group, semi-public group and private group. When creating new groups, you are able to select privacy type.
You can also change the privacy type of existing groups (only when you are the owner of the groups). Please go to your group page, tap “Option” on the top right, tap privacy type and make changes.
Every time you finish a GPS tracked activity, you will be asked to select sharing options for that activity. Since we have many options for sharing (or not sharing) GPS tracked activities, we have an expanded article on GPS sharing and privacy settings here.
By default, posts will be generated automatically when you join a group or challenge and receive a badge. If you do not want auto posts, please tap your avatar (in the top left corner) > Settings (at the bottom)> Post Settings to manage auto post settings. Please see the attached screenshots.
If you want to hide your profile detail from another Pacer user, you can block this user. Please go to the user’s profile page, click the top right button and select “Block User”.
