Have you played any embarrassing Nintendo Switch games? By default, friends on your Switch can see your play activity – that’s the list of games you’ve recently played. Fortunately, you can hide your play activity from friends with an option in your user profile. Here̵
Here’s an example of what a Nintendo Switch play activity list looks like on a friends page.
We’re going to stop your friends from seeing this list of playback activities. To do this, go to the Nintendo Switch “Home” menu. In the top left corner of the screen, select your user profile icon.
Then select “User Settings” in the sidebar of your profile page.
Under ‘User settings’, select ‘Playback activity settings’.
Under ‘Play activity settings’, select ‘Show play activity to’.
From the menu that appears, select “Nobody” by highlighting it and pressing the “A” button. This ensures that none of your friends can see your play activity list.
(Or if you only want to share your play activity list with Best Friends, select Best Friends.)
Then press back several times to exit the “Settings” menus. The next time a registered friend looks at your user profile, the “Play Activity” list will not appear on the profile page. And of course, non-friends can’t see your play activity either. Have fun gaming!
