Each employee can turn their privacy settings on or off from the web app or iOS device.

  • When privacy is turned off, your fellow coworkers can view your contact information from the Coworkers tab on the web app and mobile apps.
  • When privacy is turned on, your coworkers can only see your name and picture.


  • Your employer has the option to enable privacy for all employees. If your employer has done so, you cannot change your personal privacy setting.
  • If you are a supervisor, manager, or admin, enabling the privacy setting hides your phone number and email address. Employees can still email you directly through the Send Email option on the When I Work app.
