Why does my real name or Facebook picture show on TripAdvisor?

If you have connected your Facebook and TripAdvisor accounts, we show your Facebook name and picture to you and your friends. Anyone who is not friends with you on Facebook will see your TripAdvisor display name and avatar.

However, if you have not selected a TripAdvisor photo, we will use your Facebook photo as your TripAdvisor avatar. You can change this by adding a TripAdvisor photo, or disconnecting your Facebook and TripAdvisor accounts.

To test how TripAdvisor members see your name and avatar, find one of your reviews or other contributions, take a look at how your name and photo display, and then log out of your TripAdvisor account. You should see your name and avatar change.
