What is profile information?

The following content is not considered profile information and will not be deleted as part of a request to remove a member’s personal information:
A member’s message content from any channels or direct messages
Posts or files the member created
Any @mentions directed at the member
Note: A deactivated member’s full and display name will appear as @deactivateduser when their profile information has been deleted.
A Primary Owner is responsible for determining whether profile information requires deletion.
Customize the types of information shared in profiles
Integrate data from other enterprise systems and tools
Manage which profile fields are locked or editable by users
Secure access and authentication through SAML-based single sign-on
