How Do You Add An Email Address To A LinkedIn Profile?

I am asked this question all the time. It is probably the second most asked question about LinkedIn.
You can start from the home page or the profile page and go to the tool bar at the top right of your page.

Hover your mouse over your picture and a drop down will appear for “Account & Settings”. Scroll down to privacy and settings and select “review”.

You complete settings page will appear. In the top left corner of the page you will see Primary email
“change/add”. Click on the blue “Change/Add” link”. A box will appear that will say “add or Change emailaddress”

LinkedIn recommends you add at least one personal address and one work address. After adding the new address, go to that account and click the link in the confirmation email.


Click “Make primary” next to the address you want to use for LinkedIn emails. Addresses must be confirmed before they can become primary.

You can have several email addresses associated with your LinkedIn profile. LinkedIn will ask you to confirm your password. Click the link in the confirmation email. Then you are done.
