Securing yourself from LinkedIn's "Profile Stats" feature

Turn it Off!If you read our previous post, you’ll probably be wondering how to turn off the LinkedIn “Profile Stats” feature, so that random websites can’t find out who you are, where you work, and what you do.

Luckily, LinkedIn does provide a way to disable (at least, anonymize) the feature.

Settings > Privacy Controls > Select what other see when you’ve viewed their profile

And select the “anonymous” option.

You’ve probably noticed that this option is discouraged, as you’ll lose the benefits of “Profile Stats”… but it seems worth it to me!
