How Do I Hide Chat/Questions/Attendees?

If you have privacy concerns, you can indeed hide some stuff during a webinar.

There are several reasons why you should add some privacy settings:

  • Competitors might register for one of your webinars
  • You don't want your attendees to search each other on Linkedin
  • Etc.

Or maybe you just don't want to be disturbed by the chat!

If that's your case, you can go to your webinar settings and scroll to the Webinar room:

In your privacy settings you can:

  • Hide the participant tab and leave it visible only to the host and moderators
  • Hide the attendees' family names
  • Disable the chat altogether
  • Disable the Q/A tab altogether
  • Hide the questions asked between participants. Only moderators and hosts will be able to see everyone's questions
  • Disable the polls

Thanks to our preview mode, you'll see the you'll be able to see the changes that you make on the webinar room directly.
