Make a Personal Vocabulary List Private

If you don’t want your personal vocabulary lists to be searchable or available to other users, we ask that you please make your lists private, which you can do by following these instructions.

Please note: If you use our app on iPhone or iPad, you will not be able to make your lists private in the app. Instead, you will need to make the change on our website, either in a web browser on your mobile device or in a web browser on a computer. 

First, log into your account on the website.

If you're on a computer, click the three dots at the top of the page followed by "Vocabulary". If you're on a smartphone or tablet, click on the menu button in the top right corner and then click "Vocabulary".

Under “My lists” you will find all of the lists that you followed or created. If you don't see the list you want to make private, click on the total number of lists to the right of "My Lists".

Click or tap on the list that you would like to make private.

On the resulting list page, click or tap on the three dots to the right of the “Start the quiz” button and select “Make private” in the dropdown menu.

When you select “Make private,” a confirmation box will appear asking if you are sure you wish to make this change. Select “Ok”.

Once you select “Ok” on the confirmation box, you should see a message at the bottom of your screen indicating that your list has been made private.
