What happens when you block someone on LinkedIn?

What happens when you block someone on LinkedIn?

Here’s what will happen when you block someone on LinkedIn:

  • You won’t be able to access each other’s profiles on LinkedIn
  • You won’t be able to message each other on LinkedIn
  • You won’t be able to see each other’s shared content.
  • If you’re connected, you won’t be connected anymore
  • We’ll remove any endorsements and recommendations from that member
  • You won’t see each other under Who’s Viewed Your Profile
  • We’ll stop suggesting you to each other in features such as People You May Know and People also Viewed

Note: LinkedIn won’t notify the member that you blocked them, and only you’ll be able to unblock them.

How does blocking a member work?

If you’d like to limit people’s access to you, you can also:

  • Hide the public version of your profile that’s visible to search engines and people who aren’t signed in to LinkedIn.
  • Hide your profile photo.
  • Change your profile display name.
  • Adjust your settings for who can send you invitations.
  • Turn on/off Open Profile.
  • Remove a 1st degree connection.

Here is Linkedin’s documentation because it is subject to change.
