Can LinkedIn Show Who Viewed Your Profile?

One of the common questions I get asked by clients all the time is whether or not people can view their profile on LinkedIn, an online professional networking platform.

Privacy these days is important to a lot of people and for good reason. We want to be able to control things online about ourselves, even though often that's not possible to do.

The answer is, yes, Linkedin can show who viewed your profile.

You can adjust these settings too if you want.

More information can be viewed at the below official link:

According to LinkedIn, to change your browsing mode, you'll need to follow these steps:

  1. Click the Me icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.

  2. Select Settings & Privacy from the dropdown.

  3. Click Visibility on the left rail.

  4. In the Visibility of your profile & network section, click Change next to Profile viewing options.

  5. Select the mode you'd like to browse in. You have three options:

    • Your name and headline

    • Private profile characteristics (i.e. job title and industry)

    • Private mode

Your changes will be saved automatically.

Remember though, when you browse in semi-private mode, some details can still be listed.

According to LinkedIn, when you browse in semi-private mode, your profile characteristics such as job title, company, school, and industry will be shown to the member you are viewing.
