Manage your contact sharing preferences

By default, people from your organisation and anyone that you work with in Slack Connect channels and direct messages (DMs) can share certain contact information from your Slack profile with other people that they work with in Slack. In addition to your full name and company name (which are already visible to people that you're connected to), contact information includes your display name, profile picture and email address (depending on your workspace settings). If you like, you can adjust this preference so that only people from your organisation, or no one at all, can share your contact info with the people that they work with in Slack.

Note: If you don’t want to connect with someone who has received your contact info, you can ignore their invitation or block future invitations.  

Adjust your contact sharing preference 

  1. From your desktop, click on your profile picture in the top right.
  2. Select Preferences from the menu.
  3. Click Privacy & visibility in the left-side column.
  4. Below Contact sharing, select an option.
