As shown below in Preferences I have a couple of options re this feature.

"WHO'S ONLINE

Some Classmates may not prefer their presence be known while browsing your site. If this is the case with your site, you can allow Classmates to hide their names when online.

Allow Classmates to hide their names when online
Do not allow Classmates to hide their names when online"

My question is about the first option, viz: "Allow Classmates to hide their names when online." If I exercise that option and a classmate selects it is the name hidden for that session only or does it continue apply to any session thereafter also?

My experience is that it stays, i.e. set it once and it's on (Don't Show Name) from then on.

Thanks for the feedback, '58er. Of course that raises another question on my part. Can the classmate who has opted to have their name hidden reverse that decision?

The toggle switch 'Show My Name' does that (on or off). If off i.e., 'don't show my name', it remains that way until the member toggles it back on to 'show my name'. Logging off / logging on does not affect the toggle switch status (until the member takes action it will remain in the status that the member last used to set it).

Thanks for the explanation. It sure clears things up.

I have found that on occasion the "hide my name" drops off. It can be reset as long as you allow it on your site.
