Privacy settings for event

Updated: 26/06/14

  • Overview of options for private events
  • Invite-only, password-protected and private event

Note: To get started, first sign up for a free Eventbrite account or log in to your existing Eventbrite account and create an event.
If you’d like to edit an already-created event, click My Events at the top of the screen and then click on Edit to the right of your event’s name.

In Step 3: Additional Settings, select Private page. Then check out the options below, which are listed in order from most to least private.


Most private: invite-only private event page

Only those email addresses to which you send out email invitations using Eventbrite will be able to register for your event. The invitee's email address will be hard-coded in at registration and cannot be changed.

For more information on the invite-only feature and instructions on how to enable it, check out this tutorial.


Password-protected private event page

If you select this option, your attendees will be required to enter a password that you create in order view the event details and ticket information and then register for your event.

To enable this feature: go to Step 3: Additional Settings on your Event Details page, select Private page, select the option Require a password to view the event page, and input your desired password. Click Save or Make Event Live in the upper right.

See below for a look at how a password-protected event page appears to someone visiting it.


Note: Don't forget to send your attendees the password--otherwise they won't be able to view your event details and register!


Private event page

Anyone can view a private event page, though it will not be made available to the major search engines or listed in the Eventbrite public event directory. To make an event private, go to Step 3: Additional Settings on your Event Details page and select Private page. Click Save or Make Event Live in the upper right.

You have the option of allowing your attendees to share your private event page social media sites or by email. To enable this option for a private event, select Attendees can share this event on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

If this option is enabled, the sharing buttons shown at the top of all public event pages (indicated below) will remain on your private event page. If this option is not enabled, then those share buttons will not appear on your event page.
