I sent my CV to a company and they wanted to see my code examples. I made my private git account public and share with them. But, It is fact that, employer can download my project and use it. What is the best way to show some code examples. How professionals do that?

I would be skeptical of a company that wanted to see more than 50 lines of my code especially before the interview. If I was asked for sample code, I would just send them a 50 line example. They are not going to have the time to look at lot of my code.

That should be the least of your worries.  I am sure the company has lots of their own code.  They don't need yours. 

But yes, giving them access to your code on a place like github is a good way of doing it.

I doubt they'd want to look at a lot of code. In an interview they might ask you to walk them through some of it, but to look at an an entire software project you don't know would take a lot of time - I doubt they'd do that.

A link to a mobile app or a running web app you built might be useful. They could then ask questions about it during the interview.
 
I can't beleive you just said that. Now I need to calm down with this tiny ad:
Why should you try IntelliJ IDEA ?
