If you have added someone to your connection by mistake on LinkedIn and want to delete him, or if you want to make your Connections list private, then this article will guide you through it. Even if you have a free LinkedIn account, you can do both using the in-built options. It is possible to make these changes using any platform, but we are mentioning the method on the web version.
LinkedIn is one of the best online job search websites to find jobs to do from home. Like Facebook, users can add people to their list, also known as Connections. By default, the Connections list is visible to all the people in your connection or network. On the other hand, let’s assume that you added someone to your connection, and he/she is sending countless spam messages. At such a moment, it is better to get rid of him/her by removing the connection.
