What does it mean for a circuit to be “Private”?

 Private circuits are not shown to other users in the Public Circuit pages. Users cannot see your Private circuits in your profile view. You will not be able to share your private circuits with others.

 A handful of National Instruments employees have the ability to access your Private circuits if absolutely necessary in order to provide a quality experience with Multisim Live. If you would like to keep your circuits completely off the cloud, consider downloading your design to disk. Circuits that haven’t been saved will never be uploaded to the cloud and are never viewable by others.
