LinkedIn: A platform for professionals to create and communicate with people! The platform is of great help when you desire to meet true industry professionals. Additionally, the app has a long history of helping users find jobs in their respective fields. You can receive news on the most recent trends in your field and network of contacts through this app.
Creating content on LinkedIn opens up a world of possibilities for job seekers. You must also constantly polish your accounts in order to make relevant contacts.
We know that users on the platform need to remain at the top of their games. So, people naturally run into individuals who offer fake employment offers when looking for a job sometimes.
There are moments on LinkedIn that make you particularly vulnerable. You are at more risk of mindlessly clicking links, not knowing that a scammer is impersonating a recruiter from a reputable organization.
We should be able to locate someone’s IP address via LinkedIn to manage the matter expertly. We can block their IP addresses or divulge their locations this way.
We will therefore discuss LinkedIn IP address finders in this blog today. So, have a seat and read the entire blog below.

Creating a personal IP logger
Third-party apps like Grabify are wonderful and widely used. But you should note that not everyone falls for them because they are easily identifiable.
We believe this method will work for you if you need your plan to work on the first try without raising any suspicions. You should create a website first for this method.
We know you are dreading the method already if you lack coding skills. But you can always look for people who might give you a little helping hand.
A hosting plan and a custom domain name are equally necessary. You can go for free hosting plans but never settle for a bad domain name. We advise you to go for the dot com domain name.
You should go to LinkedIn and send the link to the target user. It is time to persuade them to follow the link to your website. You will get their IP address when they follow the link.
