IMPORTANT: If you close your only LinkedIn account, you will not have access to your connections or any information you've added to your account. It also means that your profile will no longer be visible on LinkedIn. Removing your public profile from search engines like Yahoo! and Google may take additional time, and that process is up to them.
- Move your cursor over Settings.
- Click the Accounts tab toward the bottom of the page and select Close your account.
