Excluding hidden fields from searches

    Hi,
    Is there a way users that have hidden fields can be excluded from member search results?
    It seems that if a user hides a field, their profile still shows in the search results when someone searches for whatever was hidden.

    For example, if a user #1 sets the visibility of an xprofile field “State” to “only me”. Then user #2 searches for the state that User #1 hid, then User #1’s profile should not show up on the search results. But it does. This kind of defeats the purpose of hiding a field so I’m hoping there is a way to exclude those results from searches. Any advice or insight is much appreciated!

    I am using WP 3.9.2 and BP 2.0.2.
    Thanks in advance!
