Disconnect your LinkedIn and personal accounts

If you've connected your LinkedIn account to your Microsoft personal account, you can disconnect them at any time. When you disconnect your accounts, LinkedIn will no longer provide data to your Microsoft account, and your Microsoft account will no longer provide data to LinkedIn. 

Contacts that have been imported to LinkedIn from your Microsoft account are not automatically deleted when you disconnect accounts. Learn about managing your imported contacts on LinkedIn.

Disconnecting from either LinkedIn or Microsoft will have the same effect.

To disconnect and remove data sharing permissions between LinkedIn and Microsoft using your Microsoft account, do the following:

  1. Sign in to your Microsoft account at https://accounts.microsoft.com.

  2. Select the Privacy box.

  3. Select the Overview tab.

  4. Scroll down to Other privacy settings > Apps and services.

  5. Select Apps and services that can access your data.

  6. Select Remove these permissions.
