How to manage your event privacy settings in our new event creation experience

Eventbrite offers different levels of privacy for events: public, private (hidden from search results and distribution partners), password-protected, and invitation-only. To set your event privacy, go to “Privacy” (under “Privacy Settings” in your manage event menu). Then choose "Public" or "Private".

TIP: Our eblink{new event creation experience=>} isn't available to all event creators at this time. Learn how to eblink{manage your privacy settings in classic create=>}.

NOTE: You can change the privacy settings for your event at any time. Making your event "Private" after publishing as "Public" won't eblink{remove it=>} from any third-party search results (like Google) if it’s already indexed by their system.

1. Log into your account.

Event creators can log into their Eventbrite account eblink{here=> target=_blank}.

2. Select your event.

NOTE: Eventbrite Music — if you’re not defaulted to the Events page (where events for the selected organization show), eblink{switch your organization=>} in the top-right of the screen. Then click “Events”.

3. Click "Privacy" (under Privacy Settings).

4. Choose "Public" or "Private".

• Public — List an eligible event in the Eventbrite public events directory, on major search engines, and eblink{partner sites=>}. Making your event "Private" after it's "Public" won't remove it from any third-party search results (like Google) if it’s already indexed by their system. • Private — Don't list an eligible in the Eventbrite public events directory, major search engines, or partner sites. Instead, share the event eblink{URL=>} (link) so people can reach the event listing and register.

PRO TIP: eblink{Learn more about showing a public event in search=>}.

5. Additional settings for "Private" events.

Under “Who can view this event?” select one of these options: • Anyone with the link — Anyone with the event URL (link) can access the event. The event is not searchable on our website or affiliate websites. • Only people with an Eventbrite invitation — Your event is "invite-only" (only people that receive an invitation can register). Use the eblink{Email Invitations=>} feature on Eventbrite to invite specific guests to register and attend. • Only people with the password - Only people with the password can register for your event. Create a unique password and share it with specific people. Passwords are not case sensitive.

NOTE: The "Only people with an Eventbrite invitation" option does not work with invitations sent from eblink{MailChimp=>} or any other third-party email tool.
