  • If your profile is showing up as Not Ranked, please review our rules page and follow the appeal process detailed there.

Guide: How to Disable Privacy Settings on Origin, Steam, Xbox Live, PSN

Is your gamercard not showing your games/achievements or displaying out of date information? This is likely because you have privacy enabled on either Origin, Steam, Xbox Live, or PSN. Since these questions have been asked a few times before, here's a quick guide on how to modify your profile settings and enjoy uninterrupted tracking.

Note that the site is not immediately notified of any changes in privacy settings - you will either need to wait until the next profile scan or re-enter your information on the site.

Stadia
  1. While logged in to Stadia at https://stadia.google.com/, navigate to Stadia settings -> Friends & privacy
  2. Under the Friends & privacy section, make sure the following setting - "See your games and achievements" is set to "All Players"
  3. And that's it, you should be able to link your account to the site now. Make sure to enter the full username, including the # sign and any digits that follow it.

GOG
  1. While logged in on the GOG home page, hover over your username in the top navigation and click "Privacy & Settings"
  2. Ensure the visibility of both your profile and game library is set to "ALL VISITORS"
  3. Additionally, make sure the Profile enabled box is checked if it isn't already
  4. If you are still having issues, a screenshot is included below with the exact settings you should have enabled for proper tracking

Google Play
  1. Open up the Play Games app on your phone
  2. Tap the menu icon at the top right corner of the screen and go to Settings. From here, make sure "Public gamer profile" is turned on
  3. Additionally, from your profile page in the app, click the Edit icon and ensure a Gamer ID is set and the option "Allow other players to see my game activity" is turned on. The Gamer ID is the only information you'll need to enter here to have your profile tracked properly.
  4. Some screenshots are included below that show exactly what options need to be enabled in case you are still having issues.
  5. If you're having difficulties with the site finding your profile, make sure you are entering in your Gamer ID that's set within the Play Games app, not your Google account email.

Origin


1. In Origin, click on your name in the bottom left, click show profile.
2. Click the orange button saying "edit on ea.com"
3. On the EA page, make sure your privacy is set to "everyone"
4. Make sure the Achievements and Origin Points boxed is ticked.
5. Click Save.



Steam

1. Navigate to Edit Profile on your Steam Community page
2. Ensure that a custom URL is set, as shown in the screenshot below. This should be the username you are sending us when creating a gamercard.



3. Again on the same page, navigate to My Privacy Settings and ensure that My profile and Game Details are set to Public, as shown in the screenshot below.

Additionally, ensure that the checkbox that says "Always keep my total playtime private even if users can see my game details" is NOT CHECKED - we need playtime data visible to track your profile properly.

4. That's it, your Steam profile should be accessible by our scanners now.


Xbox Live

1. Navigate to Privacy Settings from your main profile page on Xbox.com


2. There are a lot of options here, but the main settings you need to set under 'Others can' are below. Make sure other users can see your Xbox profile and see your game and app history.



3. That's it, your Xbox profile should be accessible by our scanners now.

PSN

1. Navigate to the PSN tab under settings. From here, select Privacy Settings and then Trophies. You should see this screen:


2. Select Anyone then hit confirmed. Also make sure you aren't excluding any specific games (unless you don't want us to track those).

3. That's it, your PSN profile should be accessible by our scanners now.

Overwatch

1. Open up the game client, navigate to the Options tab, and from there click "Social.”

2. Under the Social tab, there’s an option for "Career Profile Visibility" -- set this to Public, as shown in the screenshot below.

3. Once the correct option is chosen, close the menu and your settings will be saved. This will allow our scanners to see your profile.

2. There are a lot of options here, but the main settings you need to set under 'Others can' are below. Make sure other users can see your Xbox profile and see your game and app history.

Q: I've changed my privacy settings, yet the site still has my profile marked as private.


This is normal, the site is not immediately notified of such changes. You will either need to wait until your profile is re-scanned (can take up to 4-6 hours) OR go to Edit Profile and click Save Settings to initiate a manual rescan.

Q: I've followed all the steps, yet still experience tracking issues.

Let us know in the feedback forum.

Try now, I was able to add it fine. Although, just use "lxciferxxx" (without the quotes). It seems there is an issue with using the full URL right now

Edit: Ok I fixed the issue with using the URL.

This is why, no games are showing up on your Steam profile. I'm not entirely sure why, on the main profile page it does show a few, but our scanners specifically check those pages.

Try launching a new game on Steam while signed in, might fix it.
seems the account has no games attached, and the ones that are shown are probably through family sharing and that might be the reason those games show no earned achievements.

According to Steam calculator check @ SteamDB it says:

I followed the steps in the guide for my xbox account and it still says private. Can you please help?

Looks like everything is ok now.

Hi guys, I tried to add my Origin account but it still says "private" somehow. Even though I followed the steps and did a manual update.
I also tried to set it back to private, and then "Everyone" again, but to no avail. :(

Well I am stumped; PSN for whatever reason simply wont upload onto the site? Xbox working fine.

Have changed PSN settings to "Anyone" in pretty much all cases, confirmed, etc. Nothing...

Any ideas?

Are you sure you're entering it correctly? I see there's a user with the ID "oW0LFBLADE72o" (swapped the O with a zero)

But that other ID seems to be private / doesn't exist.

My blizzard account keeps saying it's private, how to fix this?

Looking into it - have you earned achievements in WoW or SC2? Since currently those are the only Blizzard games tracked, and your profile will be seen as private if no achievements have been earned in those games.

Edit: so yeah, the API is saying no profile is found for WoW/SC2. If this is incorrect let me know.

Same for the Bliz account - "private".

BTW, can the Diablo III achievements be tracked at all?
You've earned achievements in WoW or SC2 right? I'll look into it.

Also no, they aren't shown publicly anywhere (not even on the D3 website) so we have no way to track them. It could be possible in the future if they add support to their API.

I manually removed it for you. Currently the unlink function removes the login capability but not the account association. However, it makes sense that it should remove both so I'll update that soon.
