Hi Vimeo users!

A major concern for many users has been the ability to keep their clips private. We have now introduced basic privacy features.

On each clip's page, if you look to the right of the player window, you will see a link marked "Privacy." Click this to set the password for the clip (or you can click the "reset" button to make the clip public again).

After you have set the password, send the URL for the clip's page and the password to everyone that you want to share the clip with.

Here is an example of a clip page URL: vimeo.com/clip:143859

"But couldn't this be made easier? Shouldn't I be able to make groups of people and share my clips with just that group?" you ask.

YES! We fully intend on improving the privacy features and making it easier to share your clips with the people who are important to you. The current privacy features are very basic and only intended to protect your clips until we can implement the more advanced features.

If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with me.
