You can't stop people from camming in but you can prevent people from seeing any avatars on your parcel when they are on another.

 

Hiding avatars

The owner of a parcel (or, for group-owned land, a group member with the necessary rights) can hide avatars and their chat from those outside the parcel. By default, parcels DO NOT have hidden avatars.

When enabled:

  • Those outside the parcel can't see avatars on the parcel and vice-versa.  Other objects are not affected (EXCEPTION: vehicles ridden by hidden avatars are also hidden.)
  • Those outside the parcel can't see nearby text chat from those on the parcel, and vice-versa.
Group text chat is not affected.

To be clear, when a parcel has avatars hidden, anyone outside the parcel cannot see (or communicate with) those on the parcel; conversely, if you are on the parcel, you can't see (or communicate with) anyone outside of it. The communication restrictions apply only to nearby (regular) chat, not group chat.

The world map and mini-map are unaffected. LSL sensors function normally, and detect the presence of avatars on parcels with this setting enabled.

To hide avatars on a parcel:

  1. Choose World > Place Profile > About Land or right-click on the parcel and choose About Land.
  2. Click the OPTIONS tab.
  3. Clear the Allow other Residents to / See and chat with residents on this parcel checkbox. By default, this checkbox is selected.

One of the easiest ways is to rent a skybox or parcel that does not allow people to view you, hear your chats, or fly.    Some parcels will allow you to set the permissions that people have if they come onto your land.   But skyboxes are my favorite to rent because they're up high in the air, flight is forbidden so no one will be able to fly up & spy on you, being able to view you is turned off, and they mostly have a wonderful security system.    You can find skyboxes for rent for as little as 80L a week and is very private.

"One of the easiest ways is to rent a skybox or parcel that does not allow people to view you, hear your chats, or fly." ....... IF the correct parcel settings are enabled.

 

"Some parcels will allow you to set the permissions that people have if they come onto your land." ....... If they're ON the parcel, privacy settings are out the window.

 

"But skyboxes are my favorite to rent because they're up high in the air, flight is forbidden so no one will be able to fly up & spy on you, ..." ....... Again, IF the correct parcel setting is enabled. But that won't/can't stop people from flying up inside a neighboring parcel and camming over. There also is or was a "fly everywhere" feature in some viewers.
