How to see who viewed your LinkedIn profile?

Ever wondered who is taking a peek at your LinkedIn profile? Whether you’ve been reaching out to new connections and are curious if they’ve taken an interest or been putting feelers out looking for a new job, it’s a great insight to have.

LinkedIn is a handy tool for keeping track of trends in your industry, hunting for jobs and making new contacts, as well as just a vehicle to make sure remember the names of those contacts. Once you’ve started to build out your network, you might be curious when your profile has caught someone’s attention. Thankfully, LinkedIn gives you the answer, to varying degrees.

The answer to this question will depend on if you’re a free user or a Premium user of LinkedIn, with each level providing differing levels of clarity. We’ll go over the basics of how to get to the information then touch on the differences for Premium subscribers in our Troubleshooting section below.
