Can I disable candidate photos or social media profiles?


Workable can search the web for social media profile photos and accounts belonging to applicants. A photo and account links will automatically be added to a candidate's Workable profile when they apply. This option is on by default, but can be modified or permanently disabled.

While some recruiters find this option essential, others have internal policies which exclude this type of information when considering a candidate. For this reason, social profile (and photo) retrieval is an optional setting in Workable.

To disable photos and social profiles, navigate to the Recruiting preferences section of your account by clicking your profile icon in the upper right of Workable.

Scroll down to Candidate Privacy Settings and adjust the options as needed.
