Avoid receiving LinkedIn contact request


I dont want to receive contact request on LinkedIn. Is it possible? Can I remove the "send contact request" button from my profile so no one can send me requests?!

Best Answer

There is no option to remove connect tab from profile. But you can control who can send you invitations. From Help Center:

You can select who can send you invitations from the Communications tab of the Privacy & Settings page. You'll receive a notification each time a LinkedIn member invites you to connect.

Select one of the following preferences:

  1. Anyone on LinkedIn (Recommended)
  2. Only people who know your email address or appear in your "Imported Contacts" list
  3. Only people who appear in your "Imported Contacts" list

In your case you can select the second option.
