How can I hide my signature from public view?

Signatures should no longer be publicly visible on Change.org, since signature feeds have been removed from user profiles and petition pages.

Search engines may have old/outdated cached information in their results list and you can wait for the search engines to re-index the website, or you can actively request that it (the particular searchable link/result) be re-indexed :

Please note that

  • the search engines will try to refuse your request because the page is still "live" ; the request will have to go one more step to inform the search engine(s) that the content has changed ;
  • your comments are still publicly visible and searchable.

In order to remove your comment from public view, you can submit a request to the HelpCenter (or the Petition Starter) to have the comment removed and then follow the reindexing steps above.
