How to set up multiple addresses on your LinkedIn account

(To quickly and easily set up a free LinkedIn account, click here for our simple directions.)

You can have multiple email addresses on your LinkedIn account:

- Job leads, requests to connect, and other communications from LinkedIn go to the primary email address on your LinkedIn account.

- A secondary address ensures that you receive requests to connect and other communications from people who know you by that address.

We recommend that the primary address on your LinkedIn account be your personal address, rather than your work address. LinkedIn never exposes your email address to other members without your permission. Emails you send via LinkedIn have a linkedin.com return address and LinkedIn gives you control as to which types of email you receive via their system.

1. Go to LinkedIn. Hover over your name in the upper right corner, select "Privacy & Settings" and enter your password. Select "Account" in the left-hand menu, then "Add & change email addresses."

2. Check that all of your current email addresses including the email you use for your HPAA membership are shown as either primary or secondary confirmed addresses on your LinkedIn account.

@mac.com:  If you have an @mac.com email address, put both forms of your email address on your LinkedIn account. The newer <name>@me.com version as your primary address and the <name>@mac.com version as your secondary address.

UK or Germany: If you use Google mail, put both forms of your email address on your LinkedIn account. The @googlemail.com version as your primary address and the @gmail.com version as your secondary address. (For legal reasons, emails from Gmail users in the UK and Germany are sent from <name>@googlemail but are received if sent to either <name>@gmail or <name>@googlemail.)

 

3. If you have added or changed email addresses on your account, LinkedIn will send emails to each address asking you to confirm that you own that address.
