Question Steam profile privacy question

All history recorded while profile is set to public/friends remains accessable from friends' blotter even though profile is set to private afterwards.

I have been told this is by design.

However newly added friends also has access to those once public data. I'd like to know if this is by design too.

Because if that is the case, then i'm the only one who can't access my own history when i set my profile private.

I'm sorry, but I can't understand your question.

I think, the complant is that data collected while the profile is public/friends-only remains public/friends-only after switching the profile to private, so newly added friends can access the friends-only data even when the profile is private. The expected behaviour is that the data is whatever the profile is right now instead of what it was when the data was generated (achievement obtained, game bought and so on)

Exactly what I mean.
