Did you know you can block someone on LinkedIn? Here's how

LinkedIn is a professional networking platform that can be a valuable resource for connecting with colleagues, industry professionals, and potential employers. However, like any social network, there may be times when you want to block someone on LinkedIn. Whether it's because of spam or harassment, it's important to know that you do have the option to block someone on LinkedIn.

So, how do you block someone on LinkedIn? It's actually quite simple:

  1. Go to the profile of the person you want to block.

  1. Click the three dots in the top right corner of the profile.

  1. Select "Block or report" from the dropdown menu.

  1. Click "Block" to confirm.

Once you have blocked someone on LinkedIn, you will no longer receive notifications from them and they will not be able to interact with you on the platform. It's important to note that the person you have blocked will not be notified that you have blocked them.

Blocking someone on LinkedIn is a quick and easy way to protect yourself from spam or harassment on the platform. It's important to remember, however, that blocking someone should be used as a last resort. If you are experiencing harassment or abuse on LinkedIn, there are other options available to you, including reporting the person to LinkedIn or seeking support from a trusted colleague or supervisor.

Overall, knowing how to block someone on LinkedIn is an important tool to have in your professional networking toolkit. By following the steps above, you can protect yourself and your professional reputation on the platform.
