    I received it too.
    It's for domains that you already have privacy ON (paid privacy). They are getting upgraded to some BS.
    Cancel those privacy protections before renewal, or you won't be able to renew the domain without the paid protection.

    Privacy is for all domains , even for the domains were not on Paid privacy .
    I hand registered a domain two days ago and privacy was included without additional cost .

    Yes I know. What I meant is for domains that were already on paid privacy, they are getting upgraded to another fancy extra privacy paid thing.
    Your goal is to cancel that before renewal comes.
    So that you get free privacy.

    I just checked, its hidden.
    Maybe you mean you chose to show whois info by enabling that option, right?

    No, the domain was pushed to me. The whois was updated to my info. Later I looked and it was public.

    This morning I checked again, and it was not showing. There may be a lag to remove the whois info.
