Invisible Browsing on LinkedIn

If you’re job hunting or simply taking a quiet sticky beak around other members of LinkedIn, be aware that after looking at someone’s profile  they can easily see who has been viewing them by checking the “Who’s Viewed Your Profile?” feature.

For the occasions when you need your privacy, here’s how to make yourself invisible on LinkedIn:

  • Log into LinkedIn with your user name and password as usual.
  • Once you’re logged in, hover over your mini photo icon in the top right-hand corner  and the Account & Settings menu will drop down.
  • Click on the Privacy & Settings option.


  • Click on the “Select what others see when you’ve viewed their profile” option to edit your settings.
  • linkedin2To make yourself invisible to the person you have viewed, select You will be totally anonymous.
