How to View Someone's LinkedIn Profile without them Knowing

Can Someone See I Viewed Their Linkedin If I Don’t Have An Account?

If you don’t like the LinkedIn feature that notifies people when you view their profile, you can either change the way your profile looks when they’ve seen that you’ve viewed it, or you can go in incognito mode and visit their profile without logging in.

Fortunately, people won’t be able to see that you viewed your profile if you’re not logged in. This would be impossible because there’s no way LinkedIn can identify you since you’re not logged into your account. As long as you’re not logged in, private browser or not, the person won’t know that you viewed their profile.

However, they will be notified that their profile was viewed, but the profile will come up as anonymous. You can hide your profile and view people’s profiles whilst being logged in and they won’t know it was you.

Private profile characteristics

To do this, go to your profile, tap on the icon, select Settings & Privacy > How others see your LinkedIn activity > Profile viewing options > select Private profile characteristics or Private mode.

If You Don’t Have a Linkedin Account Does Your View Count?

If you view someone’s profile on Linkedin and you don’t have an account, your view will still count. People will know that someone viewed their account even if you don’t have an account because LinkedIn still processes views even from people who don’t have an account.

Although your view still counts even though you weren’t logged in, they’ll only be notified that an anonymous profile viewed their profile, so your identity won’t be revealed. This would be impossible because there’s no way LinkedIn can identify you since you’re not logged into your account. As long as you’re not logged in, private browser or not, the person won’t know it was you who viewed their profile, but they’ll still know that someone viewed their profile since your view still counts.

If you view someone’s profile on LinkedIn without an account, it is recorded in their profile history. LinkedIn saves a user’s profile views over a 90 day period which accumulates to a profile history that they can view. The Profile history gives them a deep insight into who is viewing their profile even if that person doesn’t have an account.

To see more insight about who’s viewed their profile, they can click on Whose Viewed Your Profile. This will give them information on where the viewer works, where they found you, where they are based, and their job title.

When you view someone’s profile on LinkedIn, all of your profile information also gets recorded within their own profile history and they’re able to view this for 90 days. However, if you don’t have an account and you view this person’s profile, then they’ll get a notification saying these people are viewing your profile anonymously.

Does Linkedin Tell You Who Searches You If You Don’t Have An Account?

Fortunately, if you search for someone and you don’t have a Linkedin account, they won’t be notified that you searched them. Linkedin doesn’t notify users that their account has been searched for even if you searched for them with an account.

They only notify people when they’ve clicked and viewed their profile. If you search for someone and click on their profile when you don’t have an account, they’re not going to be notified that it was you viewed their profile but they will be told that their profile was viewed anonymously.

This would be impossible because there’s no way LinkedIn can identify you since you’re not logged into your account. As long as you’re not logged in, private browser or not, the person won’t know that you viewed their profile.

Can I Stop My Profile From Showing Up When I View Someone’s Profile in LinkedIn?

If you view someone’s profile without logging into your account, then your profile isn’t going to show up because LinkedIn doesn’t know it’s you who viewed their profile. They’ll only be told that their profile was viewed anonymously so you won’t be able to view it again.

If you are logging in without an account and you want to search people without them knowing you searched them, then you can go to privacy settings from your homepage and put your account in private mode. This will allow you to search people with an account and they’ll never know it was you.

To do this, go to your profile, tap on the icon, select Settings Privacy How others see your LinkedIn activity Profile viewing options select Private profile characteristics or Private mode.

LinkedIn Private mode hides your activity on the network and helps you stay anonymous when you visit other users’ profiles. By default, when browsing LinkedIn you’re sharing your profile information with other users. However, if you’re not logged into a Linkedin account, then you can browse how you please because they’ll never know that it was you who viewed their profile.
