Profile publicly searchable?

Frequent Contributor

Given that one of the reasons given for moving from Yammer to here is that entries will be searchable. Can I please ask, if I fill in my organisation and email address in my profile, will that be searchable from Bing/Google as well?

@Julian Knight no those results will not be indexed by search engines.  Microsoft treats privacy very seriously and your organizational email address and the primary email address associated to this community will not be found publicly. 

OK, thanks for confirming Anna.

The personal information entered is viewable by anyone (authenticated or not).  Can we add an option to make it viewable only to authenticated network users?

I  Find this on my privacy Profils. Thks :)
