First, try to sign in with a different email address that's associated with your account. LinkedIn allows you to sign in with any email address associated with your account.

If you can't remember your password

If you have access to your email address but you can't remember your password, find out how you can reset your password.

Once you successfully sign in, add another email address or a phone number to make sure you can always access your account in the future.

If you still can't access your account:

If you haven't been able to recover your password or don't have access to an email address associated with your account, we can help by verifying your identity. To do this, we use a technology that scans your government-issued ID so that we can help get you back into your account as quickly and securely as possible.

To get started you'll need:

  • A smartphone or computer with a webcam
  • Your driver license, state-issued ID card, or passport
  • An email address where we can reach you

Once you begin the identity verification process, you'll be asked to take a photo of your ID with your smartphone or webcam. Follow the onscreen instructions. Once you're finished, we'll process your information and be in contact to assist you further.

Note: Member privacy is a top priority at LinkedIn. We'll only use the ID information you provided to verify who you are, and we'll only hold onto it for as long as it takes to help you.
