Q: IS YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS SEARCHABLE ON LINKEDIN?

A: If you are asking if in my case is it searchable, yes it is. My LinkedIn account is business only. No personal info that wouldn’t be quickly found with an internet search.

If you are asking a general question, this is a preference setting within LinkedIn. You have the option to turn this off.

LinkedIn, Google, Facebook – all social media – exists for one reason, and one reason only. That is to monetize information about you. You are the product. These services typically know far more about you than your spouse or mother.

And each now offers ways to stop or at least limit the information that can be harvested. Within their preference settings, you may configure how your information is shared and accessed. In the case of internet searches, I strongly recommend using DuckDuckGo.com (which can be made the default search engine for most browsers).
