The above website is my profile of Mathematics StackExchange (not my Mathematics Meta).

Is my email visible in my profile?

If yes, how do I make it invisible?

The information labeled private in your profile (including your email address) is visible only to you, to the moderators (those with a diamond sign), and some of SE employees (namely, those with a diamond on Math site).

You can check this yourself by viewing your profile from another browser or computer on which you are not logged in to SE (or from browser's private / incognito mode).

By the way, you are not required to give SE your email. The registration form accepts anything that looks remotely like an email address: something@and.more. The only drawback is that you won't have email as a way to recover forgotten password.
