How can I preserve my privacy
Pick a safe name
Scuttlebutt does not require to use your real name. You can use whatever you like. If you want to stay a bit more private, choose a name that people wouldn't normally associate with you.
Keep it in the Scuttleverse
Scuttlebutt has a way of indicating to public gateways (places that show scuttlebutt messages on the web like viewer.scuttlebutt.io ) that you don't want anything you say to show up there.
To do this, open up your Terminal app and type the following (with
replaced with your actual ID).
sbot publish --type about --about "<YOURID>" --no-publicWebHosting
If you ever want to re-enable it you can say
sbot publish --type about --about "<YOURID>" --publicWebHosting
