Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 3.1. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle is probably available here: Increasing privacy in Moodle.


Here are some suggestions for increasing privacy in Moodle:

Site policy settings

In Administration > Security > Site policies:

  • Force users to login by checking the forcelogin checkbox
  • Keep "Force users to login for profiles" enabled to keep anonymous visitors and search engines away from user profiles

Enrolment key usage

In the Internal enrolment settings via Administration > Courses > Enrolments:

  • Enforce enrolment key usage by setting enrol_manual_requirekey to Yes (in Moodle 1.9.4 onwards)
  • Disable the enrolment key hint by setting enrol_manual_showhint to No (in Moodle 1.9.3 onwards)
  • Enforce enrolment key complexity by setting enrol_manual_usepasswordpolicy to Yes (in Moodle 1.9.4 onwards)
