Unlike Facebook or other social networks LinkedIn notifies users about who have viewed their profile or page. If you don't want other LinkedIn users to know that you have viewed their profile, then you simply need to adjust your privacy settings:
The first step is to connect to your LinkedIn account.
Go to Account & Settings
menu and then click on Privacy & Settings
Go to Privacy Controls
and click on Select what others see when you've viewed their profile
Choose one of the below options:
- Anonymous profile characteristics such as industry and title
- You will be totally anonymous
Click on Save Changes
to validate your new settings.
