Wattpad is a social platform for sharing stories. The platform is accessible through desktop, mobile, and as an app. Once registered, all users can read stories on Wattpad and write their own stories to share.
Every user registered on Wattpad has a profile where they can share the stories they like, as well as photos and information about themselves. Wattpad also allows people to send personal messages to one another.
There are several privacy settings on your account:
Here is a list of what could be displayed.
Your activity feed is, by default, public. It is displayed when you select 'Conversations' (on desktop) or 'Activity' (in the app) on your profile.
You can delete activities off of this feed by selecting the [...] in the upper right-hand corner and then selecting 'Delete'.
Your stories are, by default, public. You can turn whole stories or parts to private.
If your story is marked mature, then they will not appear on your profile for users who are under 17.
To turn your stories to private:
Please note that it is only possible to change a story or story part to private using desktop.
You can add/remove your location that will be displayed under your About Me for all to see.
If you are being bullied or harassed on Wattpad, you have the option to Mute a user.
To Mute a user, go to their profile and select the Mute button at the bottom of the right hand column.
If you mute someone, they will not be able to send you an inbox message, write on your profile’s message board, or leave any comments on your stories. This action is reciprocal, and you will also be unable to contact them through these channels. It’s important to know that if you mute someone, they will still be able to view your profile, read, and vote on your stories.
If you have muted someone, but they are still finding ways to provoke or attack you, you can report them by submitting a ticket to www.wattpad.com/help.
If you would like to report a user for cyberbullying, harassment, threats, or impersonation, you can submit a ticket through http://www.wattpad.com/help/report.
Wattpad is free to join and use.
