It's the "Select what others see when you've viewed their profile" in your
account settings.

I don't think paid or unpaid makes a difference in what you can see about
people who view your profile, just in whether you can contact them and
how. I think what you're seeing just reflects more people choosing to mask
their profiles from people they view.
