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

Eventbrite LogoUpdated by Yannic D

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=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=38056} isn't available to all event creators at this time. Learn how to eblink{manage your privacy settings in classic create=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=5274}.

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=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3880} from any third-party search results (like Google) if it’s already indexed by their system.
