Hi John and RIchard ,
Thank-you for your reply
> As Richard said, if you want to hide this information, what is the point of adding it to moodle?
My concern is email privacy legislation, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_privacy the risk of our Moodle being hacked and users being spammed OR the user's password and email address being tried on other sites ( Mass attack type hack).
I think the email address is still needed for some communications such as 2 factor authorisation and for teachers to contact studnets who have not logged on
>Unless you want some users to be able to see it and others not to. Then you can simply modify the appropriate capabilities. Could you be more specific as to what information you want to display and hide and to who? Then we can give a good solution. If you want to hide emails from teachers but still allow them to send emails, you can create a news forum in a course with forced subscription. To send an email, simply create a post in that forum.
I would like
- the admin to see all and the
- user to see their own
- the teacher to be able to see a link to create a BCC email which can be replied to, without the user knowing the teacher's email address
> Can I ask, why is ID number a private piece of information? It means nothing outside of moodle.
We connect up to many other Moodles using LTI/Open Auth/Shibboleth, so we have no need to store the email address except we send some mail on email addresses. Sometimes the id is unique to the source and target, but sometimes is is shared across a federation or is their private Id from a University
