How to Hide Email on LinkedIn

LinkedIn allows users to control the visibility of their email address to ensure privacy and reduce unwanted contact. By default, your primary email address is visible only to your direct connections. However, you can customize this setting to make your email address more private or accessible depending on your preference.

How to Hide My Email on LinkedIn

To hide your email address on LinkedIn, you need to access the 'Settings & Privacy' page. This can be done by clicking on the 'Me' icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage and selecting 'Settings & Privacy' from the dropdown menu. Once there, navigate to the 'Visibility' section and click on 'Visibility of your profile & network'. Here, you will find the option 'Who can see or download your email address', where you can make the necessary adjustments.

How to Hide Email Address on LinkedIn

LinkedIn provides several options for email visibility:

  • Only visible to me: Your email address won't be visible to anyone else on LinkedIn.
  • 1st-degree connections: Only your direct connections can see your email address.
  • 1st and 2nd-degree connections: Both your direct connections and their connections can see your email address.
  • Anyone on LinkedIn: Any LinkedIn member can see your email address. This option is not recommended if you wish to avoid spam or unsolicited contact.

After selecting your preferred level of visibility, your changes will be automatically saved.

For those who prefer to manage their privacy settings via mobile, LinkedIn's app offers a straightforward way to adjust email visibility. Whether you're using an iOS or Android device, tap your profile picture, then tap the 'Settings' icon. Under the 'Privacy' tab, select 'Who can see your email address' and choose your desired level of visibility from the options provided. Similar to the desktop version, you can select from 'Only visible to me', '1st-degree connections', '1st and 2nd-degree connections', or 'Anyone on LinkedIn'. Remember, your settings will save automatically once you make a selection.

Note: LinkedIn emphasizes the importance of not entering your email address in other sections of your profile to comply with their User Agreement and avoid unwanted invitations or emails.
