I don’t know who needs to hear this right now, but your LinkedIn actions are not necessarily private. As a social network for job seekers and a database for recruiters, LinkedIn is a place where professionals can both connect with future employers and check out old colleagues, high school classmates and exes.
But if you check out your old college boyfriend without taking steps to conceal yourself, he’ll know you looked him up. And if your goal is to quietly switch jobs, know that your job hunt can become public with LinkedIn connections.
GRAMMYs 2020: Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, Dua Lipa and More to Present
The 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards are taking over L.A. on Sunday, Jan. 26.On Wednesday, the Recording Academy announced who will be presenting on music's biggest night. Comedian Jim Gaffigan and Daily Show host Trevor Noah, both GRAMMY nominees, will be presenting, along with Pose actor Billy Porter and Harriet star Cynthia Erivo, who are both GRAMMY winners.
Take this cautionary tale: After being contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn, Houston consultant Joshua M. Evans found out his job search had been revealed by a LinkedIn notification. Evans hadn’t turned off his LinkedIn notifications to his network, so his boss saw his new connections with the recruiter and two managers at the company where he was applying. It created “a very awkward situation,” Evans told the Journal.
How to keep your LinkedIn connections more private
Who you are connected with can be valuable information. Beyond snoopy bosses, there are also snoopy recruiters, and maybe you don’t want someone mining your network for potential hires without going through you first. If you want to keep your connections private for either reason, go to your LinkedIn account:
Grammy ratings decline but still score relative to other entertainment shows

The question remains what that augurs for the Academy Awards, which will air February 9 in an unusual awards season that has shortened the gap between ceremonies, concentrating them into a five-week window.
- Click “Settings & Privacy.”
- Select: “How others see your LinkedIn activity.“
- Choose who can see your list of connections and select “Only you.”
Maybe you don’t want your current employer to know you’ve been polishing up your LinkedIn bio. If you want to keep your activity notifications more private from curious employers on LinkedIn:
- Under “Settings & Privacy,” select: “How others see your LinkedIn activity.“
- Select “Share job changes, education changes, and work anniversaries from profile.“
- Choose no when it asks if you want your network to be notified about activity.
Strategies behind going private on LinkedIn ... or staying public
One key feature on LinkedIn is that you can see who has viewed your profile, depending on their privacy setting. For example, if I click on a hiring manager’s LinkedIn profile and my profile views are set to public, they can see that I looked up their profile. If you’re a job seeker, keeping your profile views public can signal your willingness to be contacted about jobs.
Podcast: Why Clearview AI's facial recognition is a privacy nightmare
All of our fears around facial recognition technology are coming true thanks to a little known startup called ClearView AI. This week, Devindra and Cherlynn dive into how ClearView works, and what unchecked access to powerful facial recognition means for the future of privacy.

You can also signal this desire more directly to recruiters. When you set up your profile, you can click “Looking for job opportunities,” then choose to let either only recruiters or all LinkedIn members know that you are interested in switching jobs, and what kind of jobs you want.
Ilana Gershon, an anthropology professor at Indiana University and the author of “,” interviewed job seekers who use LinkedIn for her research. “If you go fairly public and you have a set of skills that recruiters are often looking for, that is a sign that you are an active-passive seeker,” Gershon said. “You are interested in having recruiters approach you. You may not necessarily be applying for jobs.”
Gershon said that limiting available information by going private or semiprivate is another job-search strategy some people use: By withholding information on LinkedIn, like how you appear on viewer lists and what you list in your profile, the theory goes, you entice people in hiring positions to reach out to learn more about you. “The privacy settings on LinkedIn, when you’re doing semiprivate or private, are kind of functioning like the reverse of thein which you’re trying to withhold information so that people want to contact you,” Gershon said.
Chris Brown Gets Air Jordan Sneaker Tattooed on His Face
Post Malone isn't the only music star adding ink to his face, Chris Brown is rocking a fresh face tattoo of the iconic Air Jordan 3. "More tattoos last night for my brother @chrisbrownofficial," he wrote. "Here is this Jordan shoe that I did recently." With much of Breezy's canvas already filled, the singer utilized the room left on his right cheek.
To choose private mode:
- Under “Settings & Privacy,” select: “How others see your LinkedIn activity.“
- Select profile viewing options to choose to be public, semiprivate with general details of your industry, or private.
If you choose semiprivate, your “job title, company, school, and industry will be shown to the member you are viewing” so that the person can see, for example, that a consultant at State Farm or someone at Accenture has peeked at their profile, according to LinkedIn.
Beyond limiting what information is displayed on your profile when you view someone else’s profile, you can also limit what is seen when someone uses a search engine that turns up your profile. To do that, go to your profile settings and decide if you only want LinkedIn members directly connected to you, all LinkedIn members, or the general public to see information like your bio, summary, the articles you are reading on LinkedIn, and current and past experience.
Using an incognito browser may not help you stay private
If you are job hunting on work equipment, incognito web browsers can help you keep your search under wraps. You don’t want your browser history to reveal your LinkedIn searches, after all. On an incognito web browser, you can run LinkedIn searches of people you want to work for without using your LinkedIn account.
Grammys CEO Deborah Dugan placed on 'administrative leave' following misconduct allegation
Recording Academy President and CEO Deborah Dugan has been placed on leave after just six months after an allegation of misconduct by a senior leader.Recording Academy President and CEO Deborah Dugan has been placed on "administrative leave" after six months on the job following a misconduct allegation, the Academy confirmed to USA TODAY in a statement provided by Lourdes Lopez.
But here is an important caveat. Although going incognito prevents your web browser from saving your search history, thelike normal. If you don’t want people to know you viewed them, you must be logged out of your LinkedIn account, even in an incognito browser. Trust me: I tried snooping on two of my colleagues’ accounts in a private browser window and both of them saw that I had viewed their profiles because I was still logged in on LinkedIn.
Now let’s take the scenario in which you’re opening a private tab on your mobile phone browser to search for a person’s LinkedIn page. If you have the LinkedIn app installed on your phone, you will get a prompt that asks, “Open in LinkedIn?” Maybe you are too quick to click affirmatively, like I was, and suddenly you are on the LinkedIn app with whatever default settings you have. For me, the default setting is public, so my work to stay incognito was all for naught.
Staying completely undercover, in other words, means not only taking into account who sees your profile and how, but also with whom you are connected and if you are logged into LinkedIn. Always check your default privacy settings on social networks, job seekers!
