How to customise your LinkedIn profile URL

Updated 6 Aug 20 (First published October 2013).

Are you one of those who still hasn’t customised your LinkedIn profile URL? It’s so easy and quick to do.Customise your linkedin profile url

There is really no need to have a LinkedIn profile URL that looks like this:

ie.linkedin.com/pub/firstname-surname/2a/934/44a/

LinkedIn brought in the ability to customise your LinkedIn profile URL a few years ago. In order to get a nice, easy to read (and copy) URL like this ie.linkedin.com/in/aislingfoley simply follow these instructions.

  1. Login to your LinkedIn profile
  2. Go to https://www.linkedin.com/public-profile/settings
  3. On the top right, click on the pen under Edit your custom URL (partly blocked by a black banner as at 6 Aug 20!)  Personalize the URL for your profile and beside your current URL
  4. Type in your name – you can’t use spaces or symbols.  If your name has been used in all its forms try putting your surname first, adding middle name – or even spelling it backwards.  Avoid using your date of birth for security reasons.
  5. Click “Save”

That’s how easy it is to customise your LinkedIn profile URL.
