How to create a personalized URL on LinkedIn

By default on LinkedIn, you get a URL with random characters. You can personalize your URL:

Here’s how:

  • Click on the ‘Edit Your Profile’ link found on the left hand side of the home page.
  • Click on ‘Edit’ next to the ‘Public Profile’ area.
  • Click on ‘Edit’ next to the ‘Your Public Profile URL’ area at the top of the page.
  • Enter your new custom URL. All custom URL’s must start with www.linkedin.com/in/ and must contain 5-30 alphanumeric characters. Do not use spaces, symbols, or special characters.
  • Click on ‘Set Address’.
