How to Make your own card more pri­vate

Mac|Life - - CREATE -

Cre­ate a “me” card

Go to Con­tacts > Pref­er­ences, and se­lect vCard. Check En­able pri­vate me card. At the top of All Con­tacts, se­lect your card, and click Edit. In the Share col­umn, turn off items that you don’t want in­cluded when ex­port­ing.

Copy and paste

The pri­vate “me” card is a Mac-only fea­ture. A work­around to get a pri­vate card on iOS is to make a du­pli­cate of your ex­ist­ing card and then ad­just its de­tails. To get started, se­lect your card, and copy and paste it.

Use on iOS

In the copy of your card, delete the fields or el­e­ments you don’t want to share with oth­ers. Con­sider dif­fer­en­ti­at­ing it from your full card with a spe­cific photo, so you don’t ac­ci­den­tally send out the wrong one.
