Here’s the step-by-step guide on how to view a profile on LinkedIn anonymously.
Do you ever want to view a LinkedIn profile, but you didn’t, knowing that LinkedIn will notify the person whose profile you viewed?
This is because your profile viewing options are public under the default settings.
Fortunately, you can now view someone’s profile anonymously and LinkedIn won’t have to notify them that you viewed their profile. Here, we’ll show you how to do this.

How to Anonymously View a LinkedIn Profile
To view someone’s profile anonymously on LinkedIn, all you have to do is change your settings to view in private mode, then you’re all set.
Here’s what you need to do:
- Log into your account on the LinkedIn website or mobile app.
- Click on your profile icon.
- LinkedIn menu page
- Click on Settings & Privacy.
- Go to Visibility.
- Select Profile viewing options.
- LinkedIn will give you options — for you to select what other people see when you’ve viewed their profile. Here, you’ll choose Anonymous LinkedIn Member.
When you choose to view profiles in private mode, this feature will wipe your viewer history and disable the ability to see who viewed your profile too.
In short, you will also no longer be able to see who has viewed your LinkedIn profile.
However with a Premium account, you can browse on LinkedIn in private mode and still be able to see the list of people (other users) who viewed your profile in the previous 90 days.
This feature isn’t available with a regular (Basic) account.
LinkedIn also lets you manage your visibility in other ways, like your activity.
This allows you to ensure that your connections only see what you choose to show them.
