LinkedIn (Android | iOS | Web) automatically records accounts that have visited your profile in the last 90 days. If the other person has not established privacy settings, you can view their name, profile picture, title, current company and how they found their profile.
LinkedIn’s free plan shows the total number of visitors, but it doesn’t show all profiles. To access the complete list, you must have a subscription to the LinkedIn Premium service, which also displays weekly information and graphs with the variation of visits in your account.
Want to find out who’s been watching your profile and choose what information is publicly available on the social network? The process is the same in the app and in the browser. See the step by step!
