Five Easy Steps to a Personalized Public Profile URL:

  1. Click on SETTINGS, located just below your name.
  2. Under PROFILE, look under HELPFUL HINTS and click on Edit your public profile.
  3. In the left-hand column under YOUR PUBLIC PROFILE URL, click on Customize your public profile URL.

  4. A pop-up window will appear. Your custom URL must contain 5-30 letters or numbers. You may not use spaces, symbols, or special characters. In the pop-up window, type in your desired personalized name in the open box following http://www.linkedin.com/in/. In the example below, you can see that I typed in RosieCochran, making my customized URL the following: http://www.linkedin.com/in/RosieCochran
  5. Click on SET CUSTOM URL (see image above). Now look at the top of your page. As confirmation, a circle with a check mark through it will appear by the words “Your Custom URL has been saved.” You may also check in the left-hand column near the bottom to verify your new URL under YOUR CURRENT URL.
