Block Followers and Make my Profile Private

Hi guys, I’ve been getting followers and I don’t know them but I can’t remove them. I’ve read all the articles but I don’t have the grey gear on their profiles so I can’t block them and I don’t have the option of making my profile private anywhere. Can anyone help me?

Go to your settings and click Privacy. If you don't see Privacy try this link https://www.duolingo.com/settings/privacy If that link doesn't work report a bug here https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new If they don't reply within a week I don't know how to help you.

I'm not sure what the problem is with followers. They don't 'do' anything.

It's just annoying to some people. Some people don't want to get a lot of attention. Some people like their privacy. To some people it just wrong for people to follow strangers.
