LinkedIn Privacy settings

I haven’t blogged in a bit but thought I’d do a quick post on changing how your profile will appear to other users on LinkedIn.
When you view a user’s LinkedIn profile, it captures this and displays it in a report to the user. If you’d like more anonymity when navigating through the site, do the following:

  1. Login to LinkedIn
  2. Click on your name in the top right corner and select “Settings”
  3. Click on the Profile tab towards the bottom of the screen
  4. Click on “Select what others see when you’ve viewed their profile”
  5. From here you can have your name and company displayed to other users, just the Company, or be completely Anonymous

This was an unknown setting to me until I started digging into LinkedIn more and wanted to share it with everyone.
