Delete Private Contacts with Connect

Modified on: Thu, 17 Nov, 2022 at 7:09 PM

As easily as you can create a private contact, you can also delete them. This ability is particularly useful if you integrate your email inbox in Connect. Since the email integration considers any public or private contacts to be influencers, it will automatically pull in all emails related to a given private contact. 

If you've added yourself as a private contact and then use the same email address for integration, your teammates can see all emails in your personal inbox.  If you delete your information from the private contact list before integration, this issue can be avoided.  

If your account uses private contacts to send email announcements to colleagues, the email integration will also import all correspondence between the linked inbox and those added as private contacts. To solve this problem, you can add their colleagues’ email addresses to their email blocklists.

To easily delete a private contact, navigate to the private contacts page, find the contact that needs to be removed, and click on the kebab menu on the far right of their contact result card. At the bottom of the menu is “Delete Private Contact.” This action will remove the private contact from the Private Contacts page and any lists their were a member. 

To Delete a Private Contact:

1. Navigate to the Contacts tab.

2. Select Lists.
3. On the left-hand side of the screen, select Private Contacts. This will contain a list of all Private Contacts that have been added to your account.

4. Click the Ellipses button for the contact you wish to remove.

5. Select Delete Private Contact.
