    Most Of You Probably AllReady Know This But For Those Who Dont...

    If You Have An Account On Photo Bucket I Strongly Suggest You Make It Private By Changing Your Settings On There. If Not, Anybody On The Internet Can Type Your Username Into Photo Bucket "Search" and Look At Every Single Picture You Have! Your Babies/Family/Friends.. Or Whatever Else You Have In Your Album. If You Change Your Settings To Private Though Then a Screen Will Come Up Asking Viewers For The Password To View Everything, So Without The Password They Cant Nose Anymore :)

    People Easily Find Your Information By RIGHT CLICKING Any Picture You Post, and Then Clicking "Properties". Once They've Clicked Properties, There Will Be An Address Starting With.. http:// .. Which Will Have Your Photobucket Username At The End. Then All They Have To Do Is Search You!

    So Be Careful xxx

    Just changed mine to private- it only has pics that I post here anyway though.

    Will people still be able to see pics that I post here if it is set private ?

    Log In To Your Photo Bucket Account http://www.photobucket.com

    Then At The Top Right Of The Screen It Says Account Settings. Just Click That, Then Scroll Down Until You Get To The Box That Says "Album Settings (edit my album settings)".

    Change Your Album To Private and Save. :)
