How to customize the URL of your LinkedIn profile

Before customizing the URL of your LinkedIn profile, it’s best to ensure that all vital information is posted since it serves as your online resume. Think of the name that you wish to use in your URL. It must be composed of 3 to 30 numbers or letters. Special characters and spaces are not accepted.

    1. Log in to your LinkedIn account.
    2. Hover your mouse on “Profile”, which can be found on the top part of the screen, then click “edit profile”. (See Image Below)

If you’ve changed it three times in less than six months, you must wait for the said period to pass before you can change your URL again.
