My own observations of threatened taxa are obscured from me

Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):

Step 1: Open any of my own observations of threatened species, or Explore tool, or taxon pages

I don’t know if this is a bug or if everyone has this but I see my own observations of threatened taxa as obscured. This happens on any maps on the website for me, i.e. in observations, taxon maps, and the Explore tool.

If I open an individual observation page, then I can see that point on its actual spot, but all my other observations on the map are still obscured (not adding a screenshot of this because I don’t want the threatened species to be public here).

I understand why they would be obscured for other people, but it is a little frustrating to not be able to see my own points without having to click on each observation at a time.

You can vote here it’s not a bug, but how it works for now.
