How to hide your email address on supportforums?

I just registered but don't want my email address to be shown on public? How do I hide it?

 

Thank you!

Hi Torres1,

I see that your email is set to private, only you can see it on your profile but others cannot see it.

In case you would like to double check, I would go to: My settings>Preferences>Privacy. There you will see the options

Let me know if this helps

Thank you for your participation to this community

Never use your "real" email address on any forum. Be street wise! Create a special hotmail address for each forum  like torres1bbsupp@hotmail.com then you can see where the spam comes from if their security is poor. In most forums, once you are a member you can close the email account. Saves getting nagged by the moderators. Not in this forum of course.
