What happens if my profile is a private profile?

What happens if my profile is a private profile?

If your Hipi visibility mode is set to 'Followers Only', only users who are following you will be able to see your content on the profile.

If a user wants to follow you, he will have to:

  1. Users will have to send a follow request to you.
  2. Once the request is raised, you will get a notification.
  3. You can decide whether to allow him/her to follow.
However, if you set your visibility mode to 'Me', your uploaded video will be posted as a private video and can only be viewed by you, not your followers.

If you wish to change your visibility mode, see Public & private videos.
