Yes, people can see who viewed their LinkedIn profile, but only if they have a Premium account. Basic users can only see a few of the people who have viewed their profile in the past 90 days, and they can’t see their full names or job titles.
Here’s how to see who viewed your LinkedIn profile:
- Click on your profile picture in the top right corner of the page.
- Click on “View profile.”
- Scroll down to the “Analytics” section and click on “[Number] profile views.”
If you have a Premium account, you’ll see a list of all the people who have viewed your profile in the past 90 days, along with their full names, job titles, and companies. You can also see how they found your profile, such as through search results, your profile suggestions, or mutual connections.
If you don’t have a Premium account, you’ll only see a list of a few of the people who have viewed your profile in the past 90 days. You’ll also see a message that says “Upgrade to Premium to see who viewed your profile in the past 90 days.”
Can people see when I view their LinkedIn profile?
Yes, people can see when you view their LinkedIn profile, unless you’re using Private Mode. To enable Private Mode, go to Settings & Privacy > Visibility > Profile viewing options and select Private Mode.
When you view someone’s profile in Private Mode, they won’t be able to see your name, job title, or company. They’ll only see that someone viewed their profile.
Why should I care who views my LinkedIn profile?
