Many of the experts with whom I work have lost access to their LinkedIn accounts. They create an account using an old email address that is no longer active, and password-retrieval emails are sent to old addresses that are no longer active. This is a difficult position, but it is not hopeless.
In many circumstances, the email address you used to create your LinkedIn account will be inactive or unavailable. You lose your job or move jobs unexpectedly, your company's email address changes, you forget to update your email address, you're in transition, and you want to know about how to recover your LinkedIn account after deletion.
Get The Chrome Extension
ContactOut is one of the most useful tools I've discovered. Get the email address you use to sign in to LinkedIn with this tool. Add the ContactOut extension to Chrome first, and then wait for it to appear.
After that, you can sign up for Gmail for free. Go to the LinkedIn profile you want to access once you've received ContactOut access. In the interim, we'll use Bill Gates' profile as an example. Select Contact Out from the drop-down menu when you click the extension. Then click View to see the email in its entirety and copy it.
Login With A Secondary Email
You should log in with your account's backup email address first, according to LinkedIn (as recommended above). Any email address associated with your account can be used to log in to the platform.
If you have access to your email account but have forgotten your password, you can reset it by following these steps: After you've successfully signed in, add another email address or phone number to your account so you may access it at any time. If you don't see the password reset link, check out how to fix a LinkedIn email problem.
Verify Your Identity
Recover a LinkedIn account without email and phone number. You can authenticate your identity and seek to regain your account if you are unable to recover your password or do not have access to the second email address linked with your account.
LinkedIn accomplishes this by utilizing technology to handle encrypted scans of government-issued IDs, allowing you to access your account as swiftly and securely as possible. Please keep in mind that LinkedIn will only use the identifying information you supply to determine who you are and will only keep it on file while the problem with your account is being rectified. Normally, scans and all associated personal data are erased permanently after 14 days.
To Get Started, You’ll Need:
A webcam on a smartphone or computer.
A driver's license, a government-issued ID card, or a passport are all acceptable forms of identification.
An email address through which LinkedIn can contact you.
Access to your computer's interface
Follow The Steps below on Desktop:
- You will be requested to take a photo of your ID with your smartphone or camera when you begin validating your identification.
- Follow the on-screen prompts and enter the email address linked with your LinkedIn account so that LinkedIn can find it.
- Click I can't access my email address on the following page. LinkedIn will send you an email asking for a new address.
- After that, you'll be requested to provide a valid passport or government-issued identification.
Once you've completed the form, LinkedIn will review it and contact you for additional assistance. It can take anything from 24 hours to a few days to receive a response.
You will receive an auto-reply email from LinkedIn Customer Support on your account recovery. It normally takes 24 hours to receive a response. They provided you instructions for the following stage after they properly checked your ID, and then the boiler!!! Your LinkedIn account has been restored!
