The Community

Enhanced default privacy settings for consumer Flat accounts

We released 2 product updates for our community features:

  • Private accounts by default

With millions of consumers using Flat, there are many public profiles on our Flat platform. We wanted to make sure that only the people who want to participate in our public community have a public profile. That's why we decided to make the public community profile creation an opt-in option.

💡 If you have a public profile and want to make your account private, you can switch all your scores private and delete all the public interactions in a few clicks, directly in your Community Profile settings:

Your profile will no longer be accessible on the Internet by other users. Your Flat account will be turned private. If you have any published scores, they will be unpublished. If you have any followers, they will be removed.
  • Code of conduct

To keep our community healthy and a good atmosphere, we have added a community Code of Conduct. Just before interacting publicly with our community, you will have this new set of rules displayed:
