There are three different privacy settings. Changing the privacy settings for one of your ePortfolios will not affect the privacy settings of any other ePortfolios you have created.  

Public ePortfolios can be found by performing an internet search. If you want to put the link to your ePortfolio on your resume, or LinkedIn account, or even be featured as a model ePortfolio (and subsequently be eligible for student showcases), you must change your ePortfolio settings to Public. However, be mindful of any sensitive information you have posted on your ePortfolio, e.g., phone numbers or home addresses.
