New Features

Now Available on Rdio: Protected Accounts

Protected Accounts

Rdio is all about discovering new music and sharing it with your social network. But it can also be about putting your guilty pleasures on repeat. That’s why today we’re rolling out the first tool of our new privacy features.

What does it mean to have a Protected Account? You have the power to peruse and approve new followers before they can get a glimpse of your collection, playlists, activity, and full profile. Unapproved users will simply see a lock icon next to the username and a Request to Follow button when they view a Protected Account.

Take a peek at your privacy controls by clicking the Advanced tab in your Settings. Your profile is public by default so that other users can join in on your new music finds, but hit Set Account to Protected to change this.

Now you can play all the Top 40s you want without prying eyes and ears.
