IS YOUR LINKEDIN EMAIL ADDRESS HIDDEN?

By default, your primary registered LinkedIn email address is only visible on your profile to your direct connections on LinkedIn. It will also be visible to people who are your email contacts or vice versa. You can change who can see and access your email address on your LinkedIn profile from your LinkedIn Accounts “Settings & Privacy” page.

CONCLUSION

Deciding whether to keep your email address private or public is of utmost importance on Linkedin and other social media platforms, where information is easily accessible and shared. In some cases, when generic email addresses are used, you may want to keep them public. When using personal email addresses for Linkedin that are also associated with your bank accounts, it is best to keep them private.
