Your profile page is visible to other users on Mahara by default. If your administrator allowed it, you can also make it visible to anybody on the Internet.
Your profile page is visible to other users on Mahara by default. If your administrator allowed it, you can also make it visible to everybody on the Internet. In certain circumstances, the site administrator may have allowed restricting access to your profile page to institution members only. In that case, you are able to :ref:`remove the access <restrict_profile_access>` for everybody who has an account on Mahara.
Per default only the following information is put onto your profile page:
* Your display name (or real name if you do not have a display name)
* Your pages that are visible to the person viewing your profile page
* Your portfolios that are visible to the person viewing your profile page
* Your groups
* Your wall
* Your friends
When other people have access to your profile page, they can perform a number of actions or get in touch with you, depending on their permissions.

#. Your display name and profile picture.
#. An institution or site administrator can click the *Log in as [username]* button and :ref:`masquerade as you <login_as>`.
#. An institution or site administrator can view your basic :ref:`account settings <user_account_settings>` and make changes if needed by clicking the *Account settings* button.
#. If you allowed others to contact you, they can see the *Send message* button.
#. If you allowed friend requests, people can click the *Request friendship* button. Alternatively, if you automatically approve new friends, they see the *Add to friends* button. And if they don't want to be your friend any longer, they can click the *Remove from friends* button.
#. If the person viewing your profile is a group administrator, they can invite you to one of their groups.
#. If the person viewing your profile is a group administrator of a controlled group, they can add you to the group immediately.
#. If you are a member of an institution, the institution name is stated and linked to the institution's contact page.
#. Your entire profile page is visible.
If you do not see the full profile of a person, but just "Full access to this profile is restricted", then you can only perform a few options for this person.

We advise you not to use your profile page as your portfolio because you cannot control who can look at the information you make available on your profile. At minimum it is everybody in your institution or who has an account on Mahara. At maximum it can be everybody online. Always remember to think about your own personal security before releasing contact information on a publicly available page or even just for other Mahara users.
