I would like to disable showing me on other users' profiles in sidebar in circles.

I am pretty sure there was such option in settings, but I can't find it now. To support my thought i've checked my own circles.

On my own circles page ( https://plus.google.com/u/0/circles ) there is "My Circles (194)" On my profile ( https://plus.google.com/u/0/106157307077731636106/posts ) there is "In your circles: 166".

So I guess 28 people in my circles decided not be shown on other people's profiles.

If you have added people to your circles using email addresses, and those people do not use Google+, they will not show up as "in your circles" on your profile. This explains the different numbers you see.

I cannot find a way to hide the fact that you are in someone else's circle.
