I would like to have the option on the Edit Fact Type screen to set the default value of "private" to yes for certain fact types.


Right now the default is "no", which is fine 99.9% of the time.


However, I would like the social security fact to ALWAYS be private by default so I don't have to remember to check that box each time I add an entry.


I have also created some facts regarding DNA matches that I would not want to share on Ancestry's Tree Share.  Since they are for my eyes only I would like that fact those fact types to default to "private".
