How to change your email address on LinkedIn?

Email addresses are the main point of contact to reach you for any person or any service online and most of the social networking platforms require you to use your email address to create an account, and Linkedin is no different.

Email address on Linkedin is not only used by the professional social network to communicate with the users as well as market some of its paid offerings, but also used by the users to recover their account and (if allowed) can also be found by other Linkedin members to contact them.

If you’re using an old email address that you don’t access anymore as your primary email address on Linkedin, it’s highly recommended to change it to a new one so that you can recover your account password at least.

In this article, we’re going to guide you through the process of changing your email address on Linkedin via the website on PC or the Android and iOS apps.
