Privacy Information<br />Picasa Web Albums makes it easy to share your photos with the world -- or you can choose to keep your photos as private as you'd like. Use album visibility options to control the privacy of your albums. You can set your album visibility options during the upload process and change them at any time in Picasa and Picasa Web Albums.<br /> Public on the web: Set your album visibility to 'Public on the web' to make them viewable to anyone who knows the URL of your Public Gallery. Public albums can also be found in web search results and on the PicasaWeb tab of your Google Profile (if you use one).<br /> Anyone with the link: Set your album to 'Anyone with the link' to limit who can see it. Albums shared with anyone with the link include a unique authorization key in the web address; the key is a combination of letters and numbers that make the address difficult to guess.<br /> Private: Select the 'Private' option to set the highest level of privacy for your album -- you specify exactly who has permission to view private albums, and those viewers must sign in to their Google Accounts to verify their identities. Users without a Google Account will be prompted to create one. Anyone not included on the album's "Shared with" access list will be unable to view the album.<br />
