How do I set my profile to private?

Privacy settings on Goodreads are found by clicking on your profile picture and selecting Account Settings from the drop-down menu. On the Profile tab, you can select your location, age, and birthday privacy. On the Settings tab you can select who can view your profile, last name, email address, and who can send you messages. If your profile is private, only your friends can see your profile. This includes your profile data, bookshelves, profile comments, and your friend list. Your first name and image thumbnail are still available in some areas of site. Your book reviews will also still be available on each book page. Note also that author profiles cannot be made private.
