Enable Privacy Mode

By default, everyone except Blocked Contacts can see your presence status. For additional privacy, you can do the following:

  1. In the Lync main window, click the Options button.
  2. In the Lync - Options dialog box, click Status, and then do one of the following:
  • Click I want everyone to be able to see my presence regardless of system settings (override default settings)
  • Click I want the system administrator to decide - currently everyone can see my presence but this could change in the future
