The Who's Viewed Your Profile feature on LinkedIn can be a useful tool, as it allows you to see a list of people who have visited your profile in the last 90 days. This feature, available for LinkedIn Basic and Premium accounts, could help you make useful connections. However, if you have a Premium account, you will get a more detailed overview of your audience.

In this guide, we'll show you how to see who's viewed your profile on LinkedIn across different devices. We'll also answer frequently asked questions about this LinkedIn feature.



How to See Who Viewed Your LinkedIn Profile From PC

The Who's Viewed Your LinkedIn Profile feature is technically available on LinkedIn Basic and Premium accounts. However, there are some differences.

For the basic free LinkedIn account, you can see who's viewed your profile only if you allow other LinkedIn members to see your account when you view their profile. This is done by adjusting the private and semi-private mode that you can set when you access "Profile View Options". In other words, if you use private mode on LinkedIn, you won't be able to use the Who's Viewed Your Profile feature.

However, if you have a LinkedIn Premium account, you will be able to use this feature even if you are in private mode.

To set your profile display options to display your name and title when visiting other profiles on LinkedIn, follow the steps below:

  1. Visit LinkedIn on your browser.
  2. Log in if you haven't already.
  3. Click on your profile picture in the upper right corner of your screen.
  4. Select "Settings and privacy" from the drop-down menu.
  5. Go to "Visibility" in the left sidebar of the new page.
  6. Switch to “Your profile and network visibility” just under the “Visibility” tab.
  7. Next to 'Profile display options', click 'Edit'.
  8. Choose "Your name and title".

Changes to your account will be saved automatically. Now that you have allowed others to see your name when you view their profile, you will also be able to see who has viewed your profile.



Here's how it works on a PC:

  1. Open LinkedIn on your browser and log into your account.
  2. Click "Me" under your profile picture in the upper right corner of your screen.
  3. Select the "View Profile" button from the drop-down menu.
  4. Go to the "Who's Viewed Your Profile" option under your profile picture on the left side.

You can also access this option directly from your dashboard. It'll be in the left sidebar, below your profile picture and name.

Even if you haven't set the profile view option to show your name, you'll be able to see the number of people who have visited your profile in the last seven days. When you go to the Who's Viewed Your Profile page, LinkedIn prompts you to turn off private mode.

As mentioned before, if you have a Premium account, you'll get a glimpse of a lot more information. You'll see trends and insights from your viewers every week. The graph will also show you the increase or decrease, in percentage, of the number of viewers compared to last week.

How to See Who's Viewed Your LinkedIn Profile From the iPhone App

You can also see who viewed your profile right on the LinkedIn app. Here's how to do it on an iPhone:

  1. Open the LinkedIn app on your iPhone.
  2. Log in if you haven't already.
  3. Tap your profile picture in the top left corner of the app.
  4. Go to the "Who's Viewed Your Profile" feature in the menu.

That's all we can say about it. You can also find this feature on your LinkedIn profile, directly below your profile picture and basic information.



Keep in mind that if your profile hasn't had a single view in the last 90 days, the Who's Viewed Your Profile option won't be there.


How to See Who Viewed Your LinkedIn Profile From Android Device

To see who viewed your LinkedIn profile on the Android app, follow the steps below:

  1. Launch the LinkedIn app on your Android device.
  2. Sign into your account.
  3. Tap your profile picture in the top right corner of your screen.
  4. Select "Who's Viewed Your Profile" from the menu.

If you have a LinkedIn Premium account, you will also be able to browse the tabs that will display viewer information. For example, the graphs will show you the job titles and companies associated with your viewers, as well as the exact location where they found your profile.


Additional FAQs

Is it possible to see who viewed my profile in private mode?

Whether or not you can see who viewed your profile while you're in private mode depends on the type of profile you have. If you have a basic LinkedIn profile, you won't be able to see who's viewed your profile when you're in private or semi-private mode. However, this is possible for Premium users.

If you're a Premium user in private mode, when you visit someone's LinkedIn profile, they'll receive a notification that an anonymous LinkedIn member has visited their profile. However, if you're in semi-private mode, people whose profiles you've viewed will be able to see your job title or the name of the company associated with your account.

Why can't I see everyone who's viewed my profile?

Having a LinkedIn Premium account lets you see who's viewed your profile, even if you're in private mode. However, if the person who viewed your profile is also in private mode, you won't be able to see their information. This is simply how LinkedIn protects the privacy of those who wish to browse privately.
