When you set any Credit you receive to be "Private" it does not appear on your public Profile page. Credit you set as "Public" will be seen on your public Profile page. Use these settings to determine what Credit in your account is seen by others. Sometimes you want to keep Credit you have received but you are not ready to show it to others on the Credly site.
To adjust the visibility settings for a Credit, click the "eye" icon that appears when you mouse over any earned Credit or visit the "Manage" controls for any Credit in your "My Credit" area of Credly.
To easily see what Credit is marked as "Public", click the "Public" tab in the "Earned" section of your "My Credly" page. Private Credit is seen in the "HIdden" section of your "My Credly" page.
