How to keep your name private on LinkedIn when you see someone's profile

How to keep your name private on LinkedIn when you see someone's profile
  • LinkedIn is considered a great platform that connects people professionally.
  • Profile views are shown under the 'who viewed your profile' section.
  • There are three profile viewing modes.
  • Let's check how to change the viewing mode.
LinkedIn is an essential platform for job seekers and for people who want to build their brand/business. To become discoverable and increase profile views, you have to keep your profiles updated with genuine information.

LinkedIn sends notifications to keep you aware of who viewed your profile, but it also gives you the option to browse profiles in private mode. There are three modes with which you can view the profile of others – your name and headline, someone at “XYZ company” and private mode.

However, if you have a premium LinkedIn account you can opt-in for private mode and see the list of people who viewed your profile in the last 90 days. That said, you still will not be able to see the names of people who viewed your profile in private mode.
