Q. What is the recommended visibility setting for my ORCID record?
An ORCID record has the potential to increase your online visibility, we recommend that you make as much information publicly available as you feel comfortable. You can control what information is displayed publicly and what information you allow to be exchanged between systems.
Your ORCID iD is always publicly visible, and you control the visibility settings for all other content in your ORCID record. Any information added by a trusted organization will always be visible to them regardless of the visibility setting that you choose; if you have given them permission to do so, they will also be able to update the information they've added.
There are three visibility settings: everyone, trusted parties, or only me.
