Publicizing or hiding your private contributions on your profile

Your GitHub Enterprise profile shows a graph of your repository contributions over the past year. You can choose to show anonymized activity from private repositories in addition to the activity shown from public repositories.

If you publicize your private contributions, people without access to the private repositories you work in won't be able to see the details of your private contributions. Instead, they'll see the number of private contributions you made on any given day. Your public contributions will include detailed information. For more information, see "Viewing contributions on your profile page".
