How can I recover my LinkedIn account?

You’d be amazed at how many people I meet who say “I think I’ve got a LinkedIn account, but I’ve got no idea how to access it”.  If this sounds familiar, the secret is to stay calm and go through the steps below with a nice frothy coffee (or espresso if that’s more your bag).  If you’re still unable to recover your account, try LinkedIn customer service – they’re usually friendly and efficient

If you’re unable to access your LinkedIn account, you can attempt to recover it by going through these simple steps:

1. Visit the LinkedIn website: Go to in your web browser.

2. Click on the “Sign In” button: Look for the “Sign In” link or button on the LinkedIn homepage and click on it.

3. Access the account recovery page: On the sign-in page, you should see a “Forgotten password?” link below the login fields. Click on it to proceed to the account recovery page.

4. Enter your email address or phone number: On the account recovery page, provide the email address or phone number associated with your LinkedIn account. Make sure to enter the same information you used when creating the account.

5. Verify your identity: LinkedIn will ask you to verify your identity to confirm that you are the account owner. This can be done through various methods, such as email, phone, or security questions. Follow the on-screen instructions and complete the verification process.

6. Reset your password: Once your identity is verified, LinkedIn will prompt you to reset your password. Choose a new password that is strong and secure. Ensure that it’s a password that you haven’t used before and that you’ll remember easily.

7. Access your recovered account: After resetting your password, you should be able to log in to your LinkedIn account using your new credentials.

If you’re unable to recover your account through these steps, it’s recommended to contact LinkedIn’s customer support directly. Visit the LinkedIn Help Center or their support website to find the appropriate contact information. They will guide you further in recovering your account.

If you’re having trouble recovering your LinkedIn account try to stay calm and go through the steps above.  If all else fails, their customer support service is usually really efficient and friendly.
