I've lately searched for a lot of individuals and have a very unusual headline and work title, so they could easily figure out my identity if they wanted to. People will only notice that "someone on LinkedIn" has visited your profile if you are in private mode. Your true identify will not be disclosed.
Your account security is important to us, so please do not share your password with anyone and ensure that you sign out of your account when finished using it.
If you believe that you or someone else has been exposed to sensitive information because you did not take the proper precautions, we recommend that you contact LinkedIn's customer service department.

They will be able to help you set up security measures such as changing your password, removing users from your network, etc.
LinkedIn's support team can also tell you how many times other people have searched for your name on their platform. This number will show you how popular you are on LinkedIn and may give you an idea of how much work there is out there for those searching for employees or jobs.
LinkedIn frequently notifies individuals when you check their profiles and displays your name. That individual may even receive an email or alert informing them that you have seen their profile. There is, however, one drawback, as LinkedIn informs you on this settings page: when you become anonymous to others, they become anonymous to you. So although you can be notified of new profiles that an unknown person has created in your area, you will never know who they are.
You can browse as a "Anonymous LinkedIn Member" or pick your private profile attributes, which may display as "Someone on LinkedIn" or something more particular. After you choose this anonymity option, LinkedIn will hide the names of anyone who visit your profile from you. So yes, you can search for people on LinkedIn without them knowing.
The answer to this question is determined by your LinkedIn preferences. When you read someone's profile on LinkedIn, they are frequently notified. LinkedIn, on the other hand, provides you control over who you can see if you've visited their profile. If you choose to remain anonymous, you can browse anonymously without LinkedIn revealing this information.
People can see if you have visited their profile if you have "liked" them. If you like someone's profile but later unfollow them, they will no longer receive a notification email. However, they may still be able to see that you have previously visited their profile if you like another one of their articles or updates. This allows them to keep track of what profiles interest you most. Unfollowing too many people may reduce the number of notifications you receive from others. You should also remember that anyone can view your profile history.
In addition to liking someone's profile, you can also be notified when they update it. Even if you disable email notifications for specific types of activity, such as comments on posts or shares of content you created, someone looking at your profile page will be able to see how recently you have visited theirs.
Finally, you can notify certain people when you visit their profile. For example, you could send an email to everyone you work with notifying them that you have visited their profile.
From there, it is up to the person to decide if they want to view your profile as well.
So yes, you can see if they staked out on LinkedIn but they have no way of knowing if you looked at their profile.
Views on LinkedIn Profiles People may search for your name within LinkedIn, or they can use Google to find your profile and view your public profile information. If someone views your profile using Google, LinkedIn uses the information included in your public profile to create a personalized web page that shows up in the search results related to you.
No, technically. When you are in private mode, no one can know whether you have visited their LinkedIn page. It will still be logged as a profile view from an anonymous LinkedIn user, but no personal information will be collected. However, private mode has drawbacks. For example, you cannot include other people in your views, like profiles or groups.
So basically, the answer is no, they cannot tell you. But someone could always try to guess by looking at your network preferences which profiles not to show in your news feed. There are several factors that might indicate whether or not you and another person are "LinkedIn friends" including any common connections, job titles, industries, locations, and experience levels. If you and another person are not connected on LinkedIn, then you would not be able to see each others' updates in your news feeds.
Here you can turn on/off the option to notify others if you visit their profile.
