I have the SE app on iOS. When I signed out and looked on my profile, I saw that the communities that I have hidden (Stack Overflow and Tor) are shown. Why does this occur, and will it be fixed? The app version is 1.6.6.

    The apps use the API and according to here: "The API and Area 51 are more convenient methods for finding a user's hidden profiles than scraping every profile with more than 100 reputation." Therefore I think this is technically the expected behavior. It isn't the best behavior, though. – Laurel Apr 25 at 2:18
  • there are far more holes in that feature than this one, hiding communities is pretty much broken by design, it doesn't actually hide much. – Mad Scientist Apr 25 at 14:37
