I was doing some things with my portfolio at one of my regstrars and it made me think of this question. I have a few names that are under privacy but was wondering if they are truly private. If someone checked the whois online it would show as private but what if someone knew a person within the registrar where the name is held. My names that are under privacy are not hidden in my account so anyone working within that registrar could easily find out who owns a certain name under privacy just by looking it up through their own internal system. Yes??? The person in charge of my portfolio has access to all my information and can see it without my knowledge including names that I have under privacy so I would assume anyone else can see it also. Even though it is under privacy it may not be as private as we think.
