LinkedIn provides a professional networking platform with all sorts of people from different fields and career paths. With networking, you will need to know more about people you meet on the platform. Thus you will be prompted to check out their profiles. LinkedIn users always get a notification once someone checks out their profile. Every time you wish to check out a profile, you get second thoughts just because you know that the other party will see that you have checked them out. Well, you can anonymously view a LinkedIn profile. All you have to do is trek a few LinkedIn settings and you are good to go. Over and above that, it does not matter if you have a Premium LinkedIn account or a free account, it’s possible with both accounts.
Well just like WhatsApp privacy settings where you hide the blue ticks, you do not get to see if the other party saw your messages or status, the same applies in this situation. Once you make the decision to be an anonymous LinkedIn member closing doors on other people knowing that you checked out their profile, you also do not see who checked out your profile and all viewer history will be erased.
Now that you know what you are getting into, let’s show you how you can anonymously view a LinkedIn profile;
Step 1: Navigate to the LinkedIn website or mobile app and log into your account.
Step 2: Tap on your profile icon.
Step 3: Select Settings & Privacy.
Step 4: Now choose Visibility.
Step 5: Select Profile viewing options.
Step 6: On the next page, LinkedIn displays available options that people see every time you check out their profiles. To go anonymous select Anonymous LinkedIn Member. Once you have selected this feature, all your viewer history will be erased and you will also not be able to see who has viewed your LinkedIn profile.
