CV visibility settings explained

Public visibility

Only Indeed CVs can be made Public. Personal CV files stored in your Indeed Profile cannot be set to Public. Public CVs are visible to any employer who has a subscription to our CV service; your phone number and email address are provided only to employers whose jobs you apply to. However, if you put your phone number and email address in the CV itself, instead of the fields provided, it may be visible to everyone. Your street address and postcode are visible only to you.

Private visibility

Private CVs are not visible; employers will not see your CV in their search results. If you set your CV to Private, you can still use it to apply for jobs hosted on Indeed.
