Hide your IU List subscription from other list subscribers

On this page:

Before you begin

On IU List, some lists allow subscribers to review the list of subscribers, while others restrict review to owners or list administrators. If a list you're subscribed to is set to allow subscribers to view the roster, you can hide yourself from other list subscribers. However, owners may have access to the full list roster.

If you have already subscribed and posted to the list, be warned that this option does not change access to other information, such as the list archives. If the list owner has chosen to make the web archives public, your subscriber information may still be visible as part of that archive, or as part of replies in that archive.

Use the web interface

  1. Log into the campus IU List website for your list:
    Campus IU List web interface
    IU Bloomington https://list.indiana.edu/
    IUPUI https://list.iupui.edu/
    IU East https://list.iue.edu/
    IU Kokomo https://list.iuk.edu/
    IU Northwest https://list.iun.edu/

    IU South Bend https://list.iusb.edu/
    IU Southeast https://list.ius.edu/
    University-wide https://list.iu.edu/
  2. Click the correct list in the left panel.
  3. Select Subscriber Options.
  4. Change your visibility to Concealed or Listed, and then click Update. This setting only applies to the list you have selected.
