5. How Can I Hide a LinkedIn Position for Any Specific Company?

Ans: “You have two choices:

a. As others have suggested, you could simply not identify either business or the responsibilities you held – but this would make your LinkedIn profile appear to have a gap in work.

b. You could make both/multiple companies anonymous by naming them ‘Company X’ and ‘Company Y’ and describing their roles as ‘Employee’. Make each company’s position description as ambiguous as possible.

This is a similar tactic employed by start-up personnel who refer to their jobs as being in ‘Stealth Mode,’ because they have strong reasons to keep this information concealed.”

6. How to Hide Your LinkedIn Activity from Your Employer?

For example, recruiters can search for people with specific skill sets, flag them and add a dossier to their profile — all without that person knowing.”

10. How Can You Hide Your LinkedIn Profile from Recruiters?

Ans: “Click the “Edit public profile & URL” option on the right-hand side of your screen. Under the “Edit Visibility” option on the left side of the screen, toggle the lever next to “Your profile’s public visibility” to off, to hide it from non-LinkedIn users and search engines.”
