How To Change The Login Id Of Your LinkedIn Profile

LinkedIn_Logo LinkedIn is an interconnected network of experienced professionals from around the world, representing 170 industries and 200 countries. Its very simple and easy to become a part of LinkedIn and get connected.

I created linkedIn profile using my company mail id and later when I realised it, I wanted to change it to personal mail id so that I can continue getting updates and use my LinkedIn account even after quitting my company. Here is an easy way to change your linkedIn profile login id whenever required.

Use your present user id and log on to your LinkedIn profile. Now click on Accounts and Settings on the right side of the page. Under the title Personal Information, click on Email Addresses. This will take you to the page where you can see your primary email address listed down. This primary email address is basically used as your login id.

Type the new id which you want to use as your new primary email address and add it. Choose the newly added email address and click make primary button below. This would give you a message on the top that  says “To change the primary address, we have sent you a confirmation mail to your new id. Please confirm the same”.

Log on to your mail account. You would have received a mail from the LinkedIn team asking for
your confirmation. Do follow the steps given there and activate your new primary account.

Your primary login id is set and now you try logging in to your LinkedIn profile using your
new email id as user id and the same password.
