So my boss is very secretive about his private life never any mention on a partner . He left his phone charging on my desk and has a message come through from what was clearly a partner. Curiosity got the better of me and I googled the name and accidentally clicked on the linked in profile I wasn’t signed in s anonymous so his partner is going to know I looked at the profile. I deleted any reference to the current company I work at straight away so if the partner looked they would not see what company I worked for but do some people get an email alerting them when someone’s looked in which case my company would have been on there. This whole thing is making me sick imaginginf a conversation with my boss on Monday as to why I am checking out his partner on linked in! I’ve also now changed my profile to anonymous but is it too late...
They won't get an email alert. If they login they might look at who has looked at their profile. If they see you and check out your profile you will be able to tell by who has looked at your profile.
Unless the partner has a specific conversation about who checked them out on LinkedIn, I doubt your boss would find out. If someone I don't know checks me out, I don't ask everyone I know if they know them.
Delete your profile if you are that worried. I rarely check out who has viewed me, but it really depends on what is going on at the time. Part of my role involves recruiting, so if I am actively recruiting I get loads of views, from recruiters and applicants, but I don't check them all out as I am expecting it to happen iyswim. LinkedIn stalking does leave a footprint of you haven't sorted your settings out.
