    Hi, I am just starting - but I get a little horrified about the fact, that the login screen shows a lot more than a simple login form - when I create a test gedcom file, even this is shown!!! I would like to have more privacy for my data - I checked the configuration and changed everything to "show only to authenticated users" - but there is still too much to see for my taste.
    Is this a config error / software bug or a misconception in pgv?
    Can I have a private install, that shows only a login screen - it does not even have to tell which software is installed!
    Thanks!!!

    jones69: This should be on the HELP Forum. That said, it's probably your configuration as my Login page is ONLY that. Move this topic over to continue.

    As MAC pointed out, this really belongs on the HELP forum as you seek advice, not a general topic discussion.
    That said, I think you need to do some reading on the WIKI before you venture too far or make assumptions. There is a major difference between Privacy Rules and Access Rules.  For restricted access, you need to set the privileges in the GEDCOM configuration, not the SITE configuration. 

    In the GEDCOM CONFIG > Access & Privacy > Require visitor authentication >  YES
    This will remove anything but the Log In screen from accessibility for that particular GEDCOM.
