LinkedIn:  Who Can See My Profile? 

By default, everyone in the world can see your public profile on LinkedIn without signing in to LinkedIn.  That is why LinkedIn calls these profiles “public profiles.”

You can alter the settings to restrict what information is available to the public.  In their words, LinkedIn allows you to “Control how you look when people search for you on Google, Yahoo!, Bing, etc.”

Here are the steps to changing those settings.

Breadcrumbs:  LinkedIn>>Photo top-right corner>>Privacy and Settings>>Edit your public profile>>settings options.

This is the process step by step.

Step 1:  Sign into to LinkedIn.

Step 2:  Hold your cursor over the image in the upper right-hand corner of the page and you will see a drop-down menu.
