If you have more than one LinkedIn account, you can merge them into a single account. This can be helpful if you have a personal account and a professional account, or if you have created multiple accounts by mistake.
To merge your LinkedIn accounts, you will need to:
- Sign in to the account that you want to keep.
- Click the Me icon in the top right corner of the page.
- Select Settings & Privacy from the drop-down menu.
- Click the Account preferences tab.
- Scroll down to the Account management section and click Merge accounts.
- Enter the email address and password of the account that you want to merge.
- Click Submit.
- Review the information that will be transferred from the duplicate account to the account that you are keeping.
- Click Confirm.
- Enter the password of the account that you are keeping and click Submit.
Once you have merged your accounts, the duplicate account will be closed. All of your connections, recommendations, endorsements, and other data will be transferred to the account that you kept.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind when merging LinkedIn accounts:
- You can only merge two accounts at a time.
- You cannot merge a company account with a personal account.
- You cannot merge an account that is suspended or banned.
- If you have any questions or problems merging your accounts, you can contact LinkedIn customer support.
Why merge your LinkedIn accounts?
There are several reasons why you might want to merge your LinkedIn accounts:
- To have a single, unified profile that reflects your entire professional history and experience.
- To make it easier for employers and recruiters to find you.
- To avoid confusing your connections and colleagues.
- To clean up your online presence.
If you have multiple LinkedIn accounts, merging them is a simple way to improve your professional profile and make it easier for people to find and connect with you.
