This question already has an answer here:

Is there an option to keep the reputation blurred out when you're on stackoverflow? I mean, it stays blurred or hidden with an overlay until you hover on it or click it. Because I often have to pair-program or show some stackoverflow answers to my peers and since the header is sticky on top, I have often heard remarks about my reputation. Would be nice to have a feature to have the reputation revealed only when you interact with it.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


It seems like you would draw more remarks wondering why your reputation is being obscured. Still, with the number of places your reputation is displayed across the network, it would be a huge development effort to obscure them all reliably.

Even that aside, the use case to create a setting where users can optionally hide their own reputation from themselves (but nobody else) would seem to be so crazy obscure, I can't imagine what that setting would be called, let alone actually doing it.

Maybe you can employ some script to do this client-side, but I'm afraid this will almost certainly be .


I wrote a small user script to hide your reputation from the top bar, and only show it upon hover:

// ==UserScript==
// @name         Hide Reputation.
// @namespace    http://tampermonkey.net/
// @version      0.1
// @description  Hide Reputation. 
// @author       Shree (https://stackoverflow.com/users/965146/shree)
// @match        *://*.stackoverflow.com/*
// @grant        none
// ==/UserScript==

(function() {
    'use strict';
    let $rep = $('.-item').eq(1);
    $rep.css({'opacity': '0'});
    $rep.mouseenter(function() {
        $(this).css("opacity", "1");
    }).mouseleave(function() {
        $(this).css("opacity", "0");
