Your home coordinates are private; other players and reviewers cannot see them. However, reviewers can see the distance from your home coordinates to your caches. This allows reviewers to ensure cache owners are within reasonable distance to their caches to maintain them.

1.11. User privacy settings

Visibility of your geocaching profile

As part of our ongoing commitment to give you more control of your privacy, you can control the visibility of parts of your profile in the account settings menu. These settings allow you to control who sees elements of your profile, including your profile picture, photo gallery, and list of finds so they are viewable by the public, your friends only, or private to you only.

Last visited date

This is the date you last logged in to your account on and does not reflect your activity on the Geocaching® mobile app. Changing this privacy setting restricts other geocachers from seeing this date, but it will always be visible when viewing your own profile.

Profile location

You can edit your profile location in the Profile Information tab, or hide it completely in User Privacy settings. Profile location is empty by default and is not based on your Home Location.


You can edit your About section in the Profile Information tab, or hide it completely in User Privacy settings. It is blank by default, and any text you add can be deleted at any time.

Geocaches found

You can limit the players that can access your list of found geocaches. While the caches will be hidden from your profile with this setting, logs are always publicly visible on the cache pages of each geocache you find.


You can limit the players that can access your list of trackables logged and activated. While the trackables will be hidden from your profile with this setting, logs are always publicly visible on the pages of each trackable you move or discover.


Control the visibility of your entire list of souvenirs. You can hide individual souvenirs from your list of souvenirs page.


You can limit the players that can access your gallery of images you've added to geocache and trackable logs. While gallery images will be hidden from your profile with this setting, gallery images are always publicly visible in your logs and the galleries of geocaches and trackables.


Statistics are a Premium member feature. You can limit the players that can access your geocaching Statistics, maps, and milestones, or manage individual Statistics settings from your profile.

Block friend requests from other geocachers

When this box is checked, the ability to Add as friend from your profile is disabled and you will stop receiving friend requests. You can respond to individual friend requests from your Pending Friend Requests.

Show my activity on my friends' Dashboards

When this box is checked, your geocache and trackable logs will appear on the Latest activity feed on your friends' Dashboards. Your friends will not be alerted if you disable this feature.

Public information on your geocaching profile

For historical purposes, geocachers have always been able to view information related to playing the game, such as geocache and trackable logs. We believe it would fundamentally change the game in a negative way if users could not see geocache logs from other users, as well as geocaching photos, and information about trackable items they have interacted with.

The information your geocaching profile still publicly shows includes:

Any information that you submit to will be treated in accordance with the terms of our privacy policy.

Tips to protect your privacy

At this time, there is no way to block another geocacher from seeing the entirety of your public profile page or your geocaching activity on individual cache pages. But you can take steps to better protect your privacy:

If someone is harassing you or you feel unsafe, contact your local authorities.

1.12. Manage sharing with Geocaching API Authorized Developers

Geocaching HQ has long held the belief that although we’d like to, we can’t be all things to all geocachers. For this reason, several years ago, we created an API (application programming interface) for approved developers who are interested creating geocaching related websites and applications (“Authorized Developers”) to benefit the global geocaching community.

Through the API, Authorized Developers are able to display geocache and trackable data as well as users’ public profile information to other registered users.

To stop sharing your public profile and other information from with our Authorized Developers and users of our Authorized Developers’ websites and applications, opt out in the Authorizations tab of your Settings. Please note that as a geocache owner, even if you opt out, your cache description (including photos) will continue to be available in Authorized Developer applications. If you wish to stop sharing, you must delete any personal information from your cache description.

If you download or use an Authorized Developer’s application or website, you will be asked to give your permission to allow us to share certain non-public information such as your location data with the Authorized Developer. If you decline, you will be unable to use the Authorized Developer’s application or website.

Also, if you have opted-out of sharing your public profile information in your Account Settings, you may notice that the Authorized Developer’s application or website has limited functionality.

More information on the API program.

1.13. Friends sharing on API

To share your friends list with Geocaching API Authorized Developers, opt in to friends sharing. This allows Authorized Developer Applications that include friend features to share your geocaching activity in real time with people on your friends list. This includes:

Information provided for friends' activity may vary from application to application. You will only see the activity of your friends who have also opted-in to friends sharing. Note: Your logs and your friends' logs will always be visible on individual cache pages regardless of whether you have opted-in to friends sharing.

1.14. Cookies
