LinkedIn: Here’s How to Control Who Can See Your Email Address

Users can choose from multiple visibility options

Did you know LinkedIn allows you to control who can see your email address on your profile? By default, only your direct connections on LinkedIn will be able to see your email address. However, you also have three other visibility options to choose from. Our guide will show you how this feature works.

Note: These screenshots were captured in the LinkedIn application on iOS.

Step 1: Tap your profile picture in the top-left corner of the screen.

Step 2: Tap the gear icon in the top-right corner of the screen.

Step 3: Tap “Privacy.”

Step 4: Tap “Who can see your email address.”

Step 5: Tap one of the options to choose who can see your email address. Tapping “Only you” will hide your email address from everyone. Tapping “1st-degree connections” will allow only your direct connections to view your email address (again, this is the platform’s default setting). Tapping “1st and 2nd-degree connections” will allow your direct connections, as well their direct connections, to see your email address. Finally, tapping “Everyone on LinkedIn” will allow everyone on the platform to view your email address.
