Restrict visibility of email addresses

This feature is only available to organization owners and administrators.

By default, any user can find and view the email address of any other user. Organization administrators can restrict access so that only admins (or nobody) can view other users' email addresses.

Restrict visibility of email addresses

  1. Click on the gear () icon in the upper right corner of the web or desktop app.

  2. Select Organization settings.

  3. On the left, click Organization permissions.

  4. Under User identity, configure Who can access user email addresses.

  5. Click Save changes.

Caveats

There are a few places in the app where Zulip shows fake email addresses (like Ada Starr <user1234@example.zulipchat.com>) rather than just Ada Starr. This might cause some confusion for users. The fake email addresses do not work, and email sent to those addresses will bounce.
