LinkedIn: How to Delete your Account

I should preface this article by saying that of the social networks, we like LinkedIn best. They don't try to get ahold of information about you they shouldn't have and they give the account owner very good granular control of what appears in his or her account. On the other hand, sometimes one wants to close an account. And it should be easy.

How can one quickly and easily delete one's LinkedIn account? It turns out nohow.

First, it’s almost impossible to do it without seeking out very detailed documentation. Fortunately you have arrived at the right place.

The received wisdom is that you have to open up a customer support ticket to close your LinkedIn account. That’s no longer the case. Possibly thanks to the direct pressure that celebrity programmer (can a programmer be a celebrity?) David Heinemeier Hansson brought to bear.

In the second round of Heinemeier Hansson’s LinkedIn let me go hell, Heinemeier Hansson wrote:

But two people from LinkedIn has now been in touch and hopefully we can work this out. I’ll try my best to get the quit-account operation to be automatic, not manual. That’s the big problem.

But it’s still not easy.

You have to search for the cancel function deep in the help profiles. What brings it up is “delete profile” here – http://linkedin.custhelp.com/

Once you are there here are the instructions:

Close an account and remove your profile from LinkedIn by completing the following steps:

Log into the account you wish to close.
Click on ‘Account & Settings’ found at the top of the home page.
Click on ‘Close Your Account’ under Personal Information.
Select a reason for closing your account.
Click on ‘Continue’.

Members should only have one LinkedIn account. Multiple accounts can prevent the ability to accept an Invitation. Closing additional accounts should resolve this dilemma. Prior to closing any secondary accounts:

Inventory all connections and identify any that may be missing from the primary account you wish to keep.
Send Invitations to those connections missing from the primary account.
Update any profile information that maybe on other account profiles.

Note: Once the account is closed, a user will no longer have access to the account or the contact information. If an account is closed in error, it can be reopened by contacting Customer Service. LinkedIn will be happy to re-open your account if you can provide a confirmed primary or secondary email address tied to that account. However, LinkedIn does not have the ability to restore any pending invitations or sent recommendations on a re-opened account.

Not so easy. If you are managing any groups you have to delete those too.

You have to go through about six screens to get this done.

One of my clients has multiple profiles. The emails that those profiles were created under are long gone. Let’s see how long it takes LinkedIn to actually respond.

Update: out of three duplicate profiles:

  1. I found the email and removed the account
  2. Wonder of wonders LinkedIn removed this one based on my ticket (logged in as my client from his main account)
  3. This one (a Private profile but certainly my client) is still there.

God help you if you actually sign up for their paid service. Apparently they will not allow you allow to terminate at all in that case. One poor sod had to cancel his credit card to get off paid LinkedIn:

I tried to cancel my $20/month subscription with LinkedIn. They never responded to emails and charged me for months until I finally found a way to stop the billing. Seriously this worked.
Cancel or report your credit card lost or stolen with the number you used for LinkedIn. no new charges occurred after that. And my account was finally set back to the basic status no more $20 fees.

What’s worse, for a business which takes money for its services, LinkedIn does not answer its telephone. Here’s the number in case you need it: if anyone comes across an extension which actually works you can post it and I will send anyone who subscribes here that info. Posting it on the open web would probably lead to the extension being disabled within a few weeks.

Speaking of which, LinkedIn’s pricing is absurd – $400/year for an address book. That’s one pricey piece of software. We pay $100/month for our online accounting package and something similar for project management but there are ten to forty users using those services day in and day out.


Epilogue

With the help of a senior customer service manager (I think the head of the whole shooting works) we were finally able to get some duplicate accounts deleted/merged. It was far too painful and took a matter of weeks. It necessitated giving false information to LinkedIn (if we didn't give false information they wouldn't help us), even though they knew the information was false.

In fairness to LinkedIn, there are people manning support and in extreme cases they are reachable. Which is better than Google (only place you can contact is AdWords, as they are taking your money) and probably Facebook (Facebook is so invasive we won't use it at all).

    i closed my linkedin account the free one but it is still on the web and they said it was suppose to be removed from search engines

  2. Hi Cookie,

    It will take a few weeks/months/years for the search engines to drop the deleted page. The important thing on your end is to check that the URLs in the search engine go to a 404 page or a blank page so that the old page will eventually be dropped. If the page is just hidden inside the internal database but exists on the web still (if you know the address), Google will probably not drop it, at least not any time soon.

    I joined this network and got pop up menu from a dating site Lexa.nl (the Dutch TV program Radar made a topic about them, nasty stuff I cant get it away, till now.
    so I closed my linkedin account, the next day it was still active with pictures and all

  4. I edited every field in my profile with “Not Applicable”, Including my name, prior to deleting the account. Should it persist, it shouldn’t be autolinked to pipl or whatever.

  6. Svetlana

    Thank you for the article. I was very useful. If I had known before, I would not start to pay for an account. I myself had a problem to fill in the right info. I’m going to change my job so I tried to change info about me and I could not. And they do not allow to set info if you are a freelance, they need a web address of the company.
    I wonder if anybody found themselves a job through LinkedIn or established good professional contacts?

  7. Hi Svetlana,

    I’m sure some people have found work through LinkedIn. It’s more a place to reconnect with past contacts which might lead to work offers.

    LinkedIn is kind of a Facebook for grownups.

    I’m not sure if we’ve had direct inquiries and deals from LinkedIn but we definitely have had from Twitter.

  8. I have found it a mission to turn off the incessant emails I get every day – which my Thunderbird email client advises me are a scam!

  9. Donald Fauss

    I can’t login because it won’t recognize my email provider. I’m pissed off. It wants all my email contacts to do anything. I’m not a social website type and don’t want this at all. It wasn’t like this when I created this account 5 or so years ago. All I wanted to do was change my email address but all I get is BS. They are evil.

    Thank you so much for this advertisement. I have been trying to shut down the LinkedIN or StalkedIN site for days. It has completely messed up my life being on that site.
    Thanks again.

  11. Craig

    they are all about data mining. from the faggots at facebook, to spoke.com, and this gay site. I dont know anyone who has gained employment by using one of these sites. stick with what works. it’s called a phone, a resume, etc. it’s bad enough that potential employers have your job history, I for one do not want it out for the world to see. it is not anyones business.

  12. ulrike

    for me is Wikipedia and facebook enough. NO INTEREST with Link in
    Sorry it is not my thing !!!!I don`t like head hunting!!!!!!

    Please dont`t show my mail account Thanks!!

  13. Hi Ulrike,

    That’s funny. I loathe Facebook (I wouldn’t trust Mark Zuckerberg with a $20 loan, let alone all my personal data) but have been reasonably happy with LinkedIn which has allowed me to reconnect with a lot of wonderful people from the past.

  14. Joe

    You missed out on a very important part. You cannot delete a company !

    Help them to hide in the darkest corner on the planet, because -

    Hi
    I want to remove my primary mail id from Linkedin.Please suggest me as soon as possible.I am very confused.

    Thanks
    Jitender

  17. Hi Jitender,

    LinkedIn will not give up your primary email address. They will keep mailing you until you die.

    It’s unbelievable. Spammers.

    I used to have a high opinion of LinkedIn and was quite active, but with the spam filled groups and the non-stop spamming of users, I’ve almost stopped using LinkedIn.

  18. Edward

    Pay back time !!! My brother ordered an online accounting package and yearly subsciption from these muppets in Feb 2011, We went ballistic as hes under age to undertake any transactions. We contacted the bank and they put an SO4 on the transaction as it was illegal because of his age.
    Good part is we are now getting money paid into our account every mth from a foreign bank and have recieved to date 6 times what their fees were and it still keeps rolling in.

    y bank seem to think its a reverse DD which has been misinterpreted by their bank and said I should let them know – but guess what, and heres the good bit – YOU CANT SPEAK OR CONTACT ANYONE AT LINKED IN – he-he-he.

  19. I find Linkedin useless. Please tell me hyow to change a business account with the same email, or how to close this account.

    Linked In was absolutely useless to me. It offered no benefit except for others who wanted more info on me (i.e. quasi stalkers).

    Very complicated to close the account – one has to rummage around – there are some changes – I just stumbled into it after many blind alleys. I was getting very tired of seemingly random invites.

  49. Alex

    Just closed my Linkedin account – about 10 hours after opening it. In those few hours I have had an unbelievable amount of spam email.

    Closing wasn’t that hard – they have a Help section and it really does give advice on how to close the account.

  50. Hi Alex,

    Thanks for your report.

    Please let us know if the email spam stops once you close your account. It would be great if you then tried to reopen the account on that same email?

    * Does LinkedIn hold on to your data and give it back to you?
    * Or do they hold on to your data and not give it back to you?
    * Or do they completely delete your data?

    If you are reoffered your profile it would suggest LinkedIn hold on to your data but give it back to you.

    If you are not allowed to open up a profile on that email address, it would suggest LinkedIn is holding onto your data but not giving it back to you.

    If you are offered the chance to keep a new account with no suggestion of previous registration, it’s likely that LinkedIn have effectively (at least within the active system), deleted your profile.

    PLEASE KINDLY REMOVE MY LINKIN ACCOUNT PERMANATLY
    FROM THE WEB SITE

  52. HENRIETTA CORNMEAL

    PLS NO MORE OF THE MY SPACES! I NEED NO MORE SPACES!

  53. Ann

    I just deleted my only LinkedIn account, according to Alec’s instruction. Then I tried to sign in 5 minutes afterwards. The result is: I can not sign in with my old data (email and password) any more. They keep sending me info that my email address or password are wrong.
    But, of course, when I Google my name all data are still there. A nightmare!!!

    Alec wrote: “They will keep mailing you until you die”.
    I would add: “Even a very long time after we all die, they will still keep our data visible to the public on their sites”.

    My proposal:
    Someone of you guys (IT experts) could earn a lot of money by developing a way (system /procedure/special software/application – whatever) and helping us ordinary people to get out (rid) of the places (pages) like LinkedIn.

    It could become a new profession!

  54. Hi Ann,

    Thanks for the detailed info. Please keep us posted if LinkedIn do take your profile down. It may take a day or two. The page itself will stay in Google for at least a couple of months (you don’t have rights to have Google de-index a page, LinkedIn would have to make that request themselves).

    If not, sending LinkedIn a registered letter in legal form might smarten them up. Be aware of the kind of miscreants you are dealing with in the person of Reid Hoffman and any of his associated companies.

    Someone of you guys (IT experts) could earn a lot of money by developing a way (system /procedure/special software/application – whatever) and helping us ordinary people to get out (rid) of the places (pages) like LinkedIn.

    Great suggestion. The simple approach is to empty your account of all but your name and a single job description before closing it.

    Any automate service, Facebook and LinkedIn can (and have) just blocked.

    Keep up the good fight! And don’t forget to have a laugh or two at the people actually trusting their data to these self-interested blackguards.

    No more. I’ve tried over and over to do this and it just will not go away.

    I think it’s a scam and I’m tired of it.
    I will find out who to write if I have to start from the top and work my way down. The FCC should be told of this.

  64. Name

    I just tried to delete my account. Wow. These guys just confirmed for me why I despise these types of services that collect your personal info and remove your ability to control it. That being said, I just made some adjustments to my account. I removed all connections, groups, job info and companies I was following. I then created a bogus email account so that I could add it to the account as my primary and then deleted my legitimate email so that I wouldnt continue to get harrassed with updates and emails. It really is ridiculous that one should have to go through all of this trouble to remove their own info from such a site.

  65. Hi “Name”,

    Thanks for sharing your steps for destroying your account. Not a bad approach. I wouldn’t be surprised if LinkedIn have an archive system which will restore your account to its previous state (once they see the bouncing email) and they start to mail you again in a year.

    But maybe LinkedIn don’t have that automated archive restore and you’ve found the right away to really wrench your data freee.

    How in hell, did they get those names? I have regular e-mail contact with those people, so they must have a way to get into MY data, without MY permission !!
    I object very much to such invasiveness. Isn’t it illegal somehow ?

    “I should preface this article by saying that of the social networks, we like LinkedIn best. They don’t try to get ahold of information about you they shouldn’t have and they give the account owner very good granular control of what appears in his or her account.”

    Are you serious? Okay fine, they do give you the ability to control which info you give out, but by default you are configured to give out everything! I’ve never felt so intruded upon in my life, not even by Facebook.

  88. Mona

    Alec,
    Here are a couple of add-ons.
    1. I changed my info on my account, pic (blank ceiling) name (period) deleted zip code and deleted as much or put a minimal character in the space.
    2. Then in my email system (I use yahoo) open a recent email from LinkedIn and scroll down to the very bottom. There should be an underlined word “unsubscribe” in the fine print. Click this and follow the instructions. This is by law that every business provide an unsubscribe for consumers. It does eventually cut down on email crap significantly if you are consistent. Or just identify this sender as a spammer and the emails will auto drop in the spam folder and you won’t have to hassle with them.
    3. You must be on the Internet through traditional means (not an application such as iPad or iPhone) or you won’t see the account options. My LinkedIn showed privacy&settings as the step instead of security&settings, but the other steps where exactly as you said. I didn’t change my email, but as I described in “2″ I can manage that through my email inbox.
    I can’t say thank you enough for guiding me to the correct area to get this fixed. I have wanted to delete this for years!!

    i am actually scared to try and create a password and id to get rid of the linked in information…no telling what will pop up about me if i do!! also, it seems that most of the folks who have commented here do not get their info removed even when they try to delete their profile.

    if someone knows how to get rid of an profile that i didnt even make, please let me know. i noticed that the heads of this company DO NOT post thier emails where one can tell them of their invasion of my privacy.

  98. Joanne

    Thanks for your helpful post on closing a LinkedIn account. I have recently tried to close duplicate accounts. Whilst I found finding the duplicate account easy, accessing my profile still remains and I can’t gain access to the data I submitted.It brings a constant error message ‘we do not recognise your email account’. I still receive group emails and have no way of contacting the groups because I can’t access my original linkedIn account? I would be grateful if you have any further suggestions to help so I can clean up/close the account.

  99. Hi Joanne,

    I would suggest reporting the wrong account as personal impersonation.

    Login and go to this URL: http://help.linkedin.com/app/ask

    The screen will look like this.

    linkedin help email
    linkedin help email

    Choose Privacy/Abuse and report the wrong account as impersonation. LinkedIn have to verify it then and shut it down if it doesn’t check out.

    Let us know how it goes Joanne.

    Companies like this should be made to account for their unethical behavior!

  103. Lyle Tuttle

    I don’t all this social cyber space stuff, none of them. If I want to get in touch with anybody I’ll do it on my own. I keep getting these invitation to something that I don’t know anything about and from people I don’t know. Plus friends will ask to join me on something I never sign up for.

    Could anyone help me by the information about my LinkedIn account. I lost my email and password. so i create another account. I want to close old account. how? . I can’t sign in .

  107. My Way

    Here’s the best way to get off of linkedin.

    1. Falsify ALL of your information. It is relatively easy to edit all of it. Use something whimsical. Have fun making up things.

    2. Change your name to something that is obviously not a real name. Mine is Willy Maket.

    3. Add an email address, preferably something that ends in @mailinator.com (I just did this and was surprised that they took the mailinator.com domain). With mailinator.com, you just make up any old thing for your email user name and you can then go to mailinator.com and see what is sent to that address after you use it.

    4. Go to mailinator.com, enter the email address you just entered in linkedin, open the email linkedin sent, and confirm the mailinator.com email address.

    5. Go back to linkedin, make the @mailinator.com email address the primary address and remove the old primary address.

    After that, they will still have you connected to your contacts, but they will not have any valid information shown about you, your email address will be unlinked from your now fake linkedin profile, and it won’t matter that you ever joined linkedin.

  108. Hi My Way,

    It sort of works, except anyone who can figure out your email address or is browsing around Mailinator could take over your account.

    On top of that, you remain hooked up to your real contacts. I’d say you should remove your real contacts first if you going to use this solution.

    Thanks for the suggestions though.

  109. I want to unsubscribe from linkedIn ,because I do not have anything to respond I tried but am not qualified to be on this post thanks

  110. Found this info fall of 2013 and decided to get out of Linkedin since I was planning on retiring.
    Closed my account down as directed. Just received another invite to connect with an old coworker so I guess my profile has not been taken down.
    Re-established my linkedin, changed all of my contacting info to no emails and shut down my linkedin profile again. Hopefully I will stop receiving emails to connect with people.

    I have been trying to delete my account with LinkedIn. It is such an impossible task. I just hate being connected to my soon to be ex-hudband, who is a vindictive arrogant monster, tried to muder me on January 5, 2014 because he was careless arrogant technology lawyer.
    His love affair photos from his iphone synced into my computer photo stream, something that shocked him. I printed his photos of his lover and confronted him. He got violent, and attacked me using his Aikido martial arts, a calculated attack to kill me instantly to break my neck, just like in the movies. He had my right hand twisted backward and his other hand on base of my neck with intense pressure and pushed me down to ceramic floor with his body weigth and mocked me, ” I am stronger than you are”. . .with hos satisfaction eyes made me realized thst was the end of me. I only had one hand to defend myself. While on the floor, for
    some miraculous reason, I got my right hand, I grabbed his crotch and induced pain to it. He then started to release my neck and twisted fingers. I WANT TO DELETE MY LINKEDIN ACCOUNT BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT TO BE CONNECTED TO VINDICTIVE ARROGANT MONSTER LIKE PETER.

    I closed my account (haha) and am still getting notifications, requests to link etc. I think it’s ridiculous that you cannot chose close and actually have it close! I understand about the web and it takes time for it to clear, but closed should mean closed!
