What is a privacy zone?


A privacy zone allows you to set customizable, adjustable areas where you do not want your flower trail to be visible on the map. Once you enter your privacy zone, you will not be able to plant flowers.

Please note:

  • Other users can plant flowers in your privacy zone.
  • Your privacy zones are only visible to you, not to other players.
  • Flower petals will still be consumed during flower planting, however the flowers will not be planted so the flower trail will not be visible on the map.
  • You will maintain the Planting Boost percentage you had prior to entering your privacy zone, but the rate will not increase until after you exit your privacy zone.
  • You can set up to five privacy zones, and can edit or remove these zones at any time.
