Remove the "hidden" message in the People Directory

When we look at the People Directory in our Confluence instance under each name it says "hidden" rather than (I assume) showing the email address.

As all the users who view the directory are logged in - why do they see the "hidden" word and not the email ?

How do I configure the directory so that it displays the email (and other info) instead of "hidden" ?
