If you have ever wanted to know how to update your email address on LinkedIn here are the steps you need to take.
I always recommend that you need two emails as a minimum connected to your LinkedIn account should anything happen and you can not log in. In addition, if you move company and you then can not access that email address you need to have another independent email in place.

How to Change or Delete an Email Address on LinkedIn on Desktop
First let’s look at LinkedIn on the desktop. You need to log into your account and then navigate to Settings. You will find them if you click on your avatar on the top of the screen.
Then select Privacy and Settings.
The LinkedIn interface is changing soon so you may find the design looks different to you. The image below is the current interface – you will need to go to Account then click on where it says Manage Phone Numbers.
On the next page which for me when creating the tutorial appears as the new format for LinkedIn you need to click on Email Addresses.
Now you can add or delete email addresses and set the email address you want to be the default.
How to Change or Delete an Email Address on LinkedIn on Mobile
To change your email accounts on LinkedIn on the iOS mobile app is very simple – make sure you click on your profile icon on the bottom right of the screen then click the cog wheel to access your settings.
Changing your email address settings is visible in the Account tab and you can then click to then add or delete email addresses from your LinkedIn profile.
