Is my email address visible on here or can only I see it? - October 24th 2015, 06:22 AM

I don't want everyone on the Internet to be able to see it.

It's not visible on the site, but if you allow members to email you, anyone who does can see it.

Hi, welcome to TeenHelp!
As Katie mentioned, you have the option of allowing registered members to email you. You can disable this functionality in your User CP. Then your email will not be vissible publically. Only people that choose to email you would see your email address. You can sent your profile to where you can receive contact through the site only. You can have private messages and visitor messages enabled. Private messages are only between you and who you contact/who contacts you while visitor messages are as well but they have more options for less privacy (ie. being viewed by registered members, just your friends and contacts or just you (I believe this is an option but I would need to check again for complete accuracy)).
You can also disable all contact with people on the site. Most people do not do this but if you would prefer just using the chatroom, the forums and other resources available without being contacted directly you can.
Keep in mind that even with private messages turned off, moderators and other staff can still contact you. This will only happen if you do not follow the Terms of Service (which you can view at the bottom of every page).
Hope all of this helps. I know that this is more than you were asking for in your post but I thought I would explain things farther.
Take care.

I am going to close this now because your question has been sufficiently answered but you can send me a PM if you have any questions about this topic or in general.
