When you register your ORCID iD, only two items are required: Your first name and your email address. These data are required in order to identify you. You can also choose to add your last or family name (if you have one) and additional email addresses that you use. You also choose the default visibility setting for any new data added to your ORCID record.

The default visibility setting of your name when register is everyone, and the default visibility setting of your email address(es) is 'only me'. You can immediately update the visibility of these items after registration by changing the visibility selector next to them.

At the same time, you set the default visibility setting for any new data added to your ORCID record after you register.

After registration, you can update your default visibility settings for any new information added to your ORCID record in the visibility preferences tab of your ORCID account settings.
