Presence opt out

Last updated:

There is an option to opt out of sharing your presence with other Circuit users.

  • By default, the first time you sign in to Circuit, you will be opted in.

  1. To opt out of sharing your presence, perform the following steps:
    • On the web client and Desktop App, in the upper-right corner of the header, select the arrow beside your name and then click Settings.

    • On the iOS client, tap and then Settings.

    • On the Android mobile client, go to the top-left side navigation drawer and tap Settings.

  2. In the Settings view:
    • On the web client and Desktop App, go to General > Privacy.

    • On the iOS client, navigate to Share my presence option.

    • On the Android mobile client, navigate to Share my presence option.

  3. To hide your presence from other users, disable Share my presence option.

    As long as you do not share your presence, the option Show my city and region will be disabled and your location information will be cleared.

    On the web client and Desktop App the preview pane in the lower part of the dialog box shows how your data is displayed to others.

The result of your opt-out of presence status is that:

  • regardless of the Circuit client you used to opt out, your presence will remain hidden on all clients, from all other Circuit users

  • your presence status icon will be hidden from all other users, even in case you are offline

  • your status message will be erased and you will need to reset it.

On the other hand, you will be allowed to continue using Circuit normally, which means that you will:

  • act as you are online in Circuit, able to send and receive messages

  • be able to answer a call, call back or participate in a conference

  • be able to continue using Circuit features, such as snooze notifications, flag messages, etc.


At any time, you can choose to opt in and share your presence status and location information.
