Email Address Privacy

Confluence can mask the email addresses of users to protect them from mail spammers.

This is done by a Confluence administrator and is configured through the Administration Console. The Confluence administrator has three options for email address privacy:

  • Public: email addresses are displayed publicly.
  • Masked: email addresses are still displayed publicly, but masked in such a way to make it harder for spam-bots to harvest them.
  • Private: only Confluence administrators can see the email addresses.

For more information on setting these options, which are configured using the Administration Console, refer to User Email Visibility.
