Activision sets your profile to private by default across both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. Though here’s how you can unlock it and make all of your statistics public.
Sharing your stats in any Call of Duty title is one of the simplest ways to show your talent. Players that obsess over their performance are often trying to improve their stats at all costs.
Whether it’s lifetime KD or average score in a certain gametype, seeing your breakdown helps push you in the right direction. However, Activision made the decision in January 2020 to keep stats private by default.
No exact reason was provided but rest assured, you can revert this decision with a little manual input. Here’s how you can make your Call of Duty stats public in both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War.
First up, you’ll need to head over to the official Call of Duty website.
From this page, simply login to your account that’s used for Call of Duty on any platform. Regardless of whether you play on Xbox, PlayStation, or Battle.net on PC, this method will let you publicize stats across the board.
Once you’re logged in, hover over your profile name in the top right corner.
From here, click the account linking tab in the drop-down menu and you’ll be met with an overview of your linked accounts.
Each platform comes with its own settings, meaning you can keep PC private while making your PlayStation stats public if you so choose. All you have to do is set the ‘searchable’ and ‘data visible’ options to ‘all.’
With those options now set, it might take a little while for your stats to appear online. But you’ll soon be able to view your information through third-party sites like codtracker once again. For an abbreviated list of the steps, check below.
- Login to the official Call of Duty website.
- Highlight your profile in the top right corner.
- Click the ‘account linking’ tab in the drop-down menu.
- Set ‘searchable’ and ‘data visible’ options to ‘all.’
There’s no telling why Activision made the swap to have every profile private by default. Though it doesn’t take long to manually change it up and have access once again.
