Making Your Badge Visible

You badge is visible by default once you click "Accept". If you would like to hide your badge, click on the Eye symbol on your badge. This closes the eye and effectively hides your badge from view by others. It also means your badge will not display in the white pages if you do not wish for it to be displayed. You can change your badges' visibility at any time.


You can also adjust this under the Manage window.

If you hover your mouse over your badge, you can see all of the completed objectives for earning the badge. You can display your accomplishments with pride!
