Want to hide from your health-nut Aunt Betty, who is always going on and on about the benefits of an all Kale diet?
Worry no more, my friends… Private Mode on Pogo is here!
There are two modes: “Private Mode” and “Public Mode”. Private Mode allows you to enter any game room without being tracked on your Friends List, and “Public Mode” allows you to be found via your Friends List.
There are times when you just want to go on Pogo, play a couple of games uninterrupted, and then get back to whatever it was you were doing.
Enter Private Mode! With a simple click of the mouse, you can enter Private Mode and play without worry that someone will find you through their Friends List.
Look for the little green dot that will appear next to your screen name on Pogo:
That green dot indicates that you are in “Public Mode” and that your friends can find you. By clicking on the green dot, you can switch from “Public” to “Private” mode in a moment:
Switching from “Public” to “Private” mode will turn that little dot from green to gray so that with a simple glance at the top of any page on Pogo, you’ll be able to see what mode you happen to be in:
This means that players who want to play without interruptions will not have to remove others from their friends list, or jump through any hoops to have their alone time.
However, this feature does not prevent others from finding you manually. If Aunt Betty happens to enter the same room you are in while you’re in Private Mode, she will be able to see your screen name. It’s highly unlikely this will happen, unless you only play in certain rooms.
