LinkedIn has been around for many years now, and it may be possible some of you have more than one LinkedIn account. Whether you mistakenly created a new account forgetting you already have one or someone else creates an account on your behalf trying to be helpful, multiple LinkedIn account exists.
Though it can be a bit inconvenient it is easy to fix by merging the LinkedIn accounts. But remember you can’t merge two LinkedIn accounts completely.
Please note you will only be able to transfer the connections and email address of the account you wish to close to your primary account. You won’t be able to merge profile content, work experience, pending invitations, saved articles, endorsements or any InMail credits.
Below are the step-by-step instructions for merging two LinkedIn accounts.
Step 1 – Log in to the account you want to keep. Click on the Me icon on the top right-hand side.
Step 2 – From the drop-down menu select Setting and Privacy.
Step 3 – Select Account, then Account Management.
Step 4 – Click on the Merging LinkedIn Accounts option.
Step 5- Enter the email address and password of the duplicate account then click on the Submit button.
Step 6 – Then you will be asked to confirm that you are closing the right account and click Continue.
Step 7 – Now enter the password of the account you want to keep to confirm that you want to merge the accounts, then click Submit.
After successfully completing these steps you will receive a confirmation email from LinkedIn on your primary account.
