These queries will update the privacy preferences for all existing members, overriding what they have already set.

Code:
UPDATE xf_user_privacy SET allow_view_profile = 'members';

Since the import of our big board, I've noticed many of the profiles still have the default "everyone" setting, yet I do not want to upset any changes that a few members may have already made to tighten up their privacy. With that in mind, here is some altered SQL to at least get rid of the "everyone" flag:

Code:
UPDATE xf_user_privacy SET allow_view_profile = 'members' where allow_view_profile = 'everyone';
UPDATE xf_user_privacy SET allow_post_profile = 'members' where allow_post_profile = 'everyone';
UPDATE xf_user_privacy SET allow_receive_news_feed = 'members' where allow_receive_news_feed = 'everyone';
...and so on.
