An update on reports of scraped data

Unauthorized scraping is against our policies and every day teams at LinkedIn are working hard to keep our members and their information safe. When anyone tries to take member data and use it for purposes LinkedIn and our members haven’t agreed to, we work to stop them and hold them accountable.

In April 2021, we investigated a set of data that was aggregated from various sources, including information scraped from public LinkedIn pages and various other websites. Since then, when that same set of information has surfaced we’ve taken action and kept our members updated as needed. We want to be clear that in every case our investigators have found that none of our member’s private data was exposed or hacked.
