    Private Albums

    It was pointed out somewhat recently that some members albums that were set as private have now had the permissions changed.

    We've run multiple tests and talked with vBulletin support (nobs) and can confirm that with the correct permissions set that private albums are indeed private, however, some albums might be showing up when they're listed as being Subscribers in your profile.

    The required fix to lock these albums down again is to reset the album permissions, you can do this by setting them to Registered Users, saving and then setting them to Subscribers and saving. This way your album will only be visible to people who subscribe to you.

    You can control who is allowed to subscribe to you and thus see your locked albums by making sure that Auto Accept Subscribers is unchecked in your profile. Once you've done that you should receive subscribe requests which you can limit based on your preferences. For increased privacy you can also set the Photos option in your profile Privacy area to Subscribers.

    One thing to note is that if you add an image to a post from an album that is Subscriber only it will be visible to everybody.

    As always, we'd recommend you don't upload anything that's sensitive for your own safety.
