Wish List Privacy


A Public Wish List can be viewed by anyone, making it more likely for you to receive gifts.

A Private Link Wish List is visible only to those with whom you share the link to your list.

Wish lists set to Private Link will never appear on your profile page or in search results.

Privacy Setting

How do I sign up?

It’s simple. Start by clicking or tapping “sign up” and follow the prompts. We like to keep things easy, so we only ask for a little bit of your information to get started, you can add more to your profile later if you choose to.

I need to build a list for an organization, how do I do that?

You may add an organization to your personal profile and build a list for that group. Once an organization is added to your profile, the name of the organization will be searchable in the Find Friends section.

Schools, charities, and similar organizations should email [email protected] to have their profile verified.

Should I add a date to my wish list?

We say go for it! Adding a date in the edit section of your wish list is helpful if you’d like to receive reminders that the event is approaching, we will let your Gift Hero friends know as well. And don’t worry, once that date passes, your list will remain as is. Choosing not to add a date will simply exclude you and your Gift Hero friends from receiving updates about the approaching date.

What is Inbox?

Now you have the power to simply copy the link of an item you like and text the link to us, saving any gift to your Inbox.

Inbox is for all the items you have added by texting the link to the gifts you want to Gift Hero. We recommend distributing each of these gifts to other wish lists since items in your Inbox are visible only to you.

Register your mobile number

We won’t use your number for marketing purposes or share it with anyone. It will only be used to save items to your Inbox.

We also have a mobile app that makes it easy to save gifts to your lists.
