  2. Click Creator Studio

Video Manager

In the left sidebar, navigate to Video Manager.

Edit Settings

Find the video for which you'd like to alter the privacy settings. Click Edit next to that video thumbnail.

Change Visibility

  • Public - Allows search engines to index your video and sends public traffic to your video. (If video discusses individual student performance, this setting violates FERPA.)
  • Unlisted - Allows individuals with a link to the video to view the video. The video isn't listed in any search results.
  • Private - Video is not accessible to any search engine or any user besides the owner and specific users the owner has listed under the Share menu. (This is the most secure of the 3 options.)
