LinkedIn is one of the most effective networking platforms for professionals. Huge numbers of recruiters scour LinkedIn every day to locate people who are capable of filling roles and making an impact at their company. Many people don’t get the best out of LinkedIn because they’re unsure about certain aspects of the platform. One question we regularly get asked by those who are new to LinkedIn is ‘are LinkedIn messages private?’
LinkedIn messages are completely private. Only the sender and recipient can read messages sent on LinkedIn. There are four types of LinkedIn messages: Direct Messages, InMail, Sponsored Messaging, and Open Profile Messages. All four forms of messaging on LinkedIn are private cannot be received or opened by anyone other than the recipient.
