How to delete LinkedIn messages?

The professional social network, Linkedin, allows users to hold personal as well as group conversations. Although it’s supposed to be a professional network, trolls and bullies are commonplace online and if you had a brush with one or a few, we’re sure your inbox doesn’t look pretty. While you can always delete connections and block users on Linkedin, you can also delete the messages that don’t fit your billing.

Linkedin doesn’t allow users to delete individual messages but you can delete entire conversations with someone or a group. However, it’s important to note that the messages are only deleted at your end — on your device and account — and will still be available in the recipient’s inbox until they decide to delete it from their end. Also, any conversation you delete can’t be restored or accessed again.

In this article, we discuss how you can delete individual Linkedin message threads as well as multiple conversations at once via your PC and mobile apps for Android and iOS.
