+1 button is everywhere right from any website, applications or even adsense ad’s. Everytime your like any content, app or ad., you click the +1 button to indicate your interest in it.
But after the introduction of Google+ all the content you liked and +1’d appear under the +1’s tab in your profile. Although you liked the content you may not want this to appear under your profile just for privacy reasons.
Luckily G+ has thought about it and provided a easy option to hide this tab from your G+ profile.
Steps to hide +1 tab
- Goto your G+ profile
- Click on Edit Profile button
- Click on the +1’s tab
- Uncheck Show this tab on your profile checkbox
- Click on Save button
- Click on Done editing button
- That’s it, you are done (+1 tab won’t appear on your profile anymore)
After making above changes you may still see the +1 tab since you are logged in. Don’t worry it’ll appear only for you (to see a record of +1’s for yourselves).
To confirm, you could either logout your G+ account or click on View as… drop down on your profile and click on Public option. Now your profile will appear exactly as it would appear for others.
Customize G+ profile according to your personal preferences, we just want to share that the option is available.
