When trying to access a LinkedIn profile anonymously, without having an account, will face LinkedIn’s registration page, and won’t be able to explore the profile.
There’s a cool hack, that will enable us to view this LinkedIn profile completely anonymously (both a person and a company), and even offline (if we’ll want).
First we should get the link to the LinkedIn profile, by searching our target’s name on Google with the word LinkedIn (we can also use the ‘site:linkedin.com’ operator to narrow our results to LinkedIn only). Right click the google result that refers to our target’s LinkedIn profile and click “copy link address”.
Second, we’ll go to Google’s Mobile-Friendly test tool, which checks any link you post to it, and retrieves a screenshot and the HTML of the page.
But we still can’t fully explore the profile anonymously and to scroll down to view the entire profile. To achieve this goal, we’ll click on the HTML button, copy the HTML file and paste it to any online HTML Viewer, or save it to an offline code reader. Now, when we will run the code, we would see the full profile, and would be able to explore it all anonymously.
You can also save the HTML file locally, and then repeat this process later to monitor any changes made to the profile, completely anonymously.
