Disconnect your LinkedIn and work or school accounts

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

Depending on how you connected your accounts, there are two ways to disconnect your accounts:

  • If you gave permission to share data from both accounts, you'll have to remove permissions both from your LinkedIn account and from your Microsoft work or school account.

  • If you gave permission to share data only from LinkedIn to your Microsoft work or school account, you only need to remove permissions from your LinkedIn account.

To disconnect and remove data sharing permissions from your Microsoft work or school account:

  1. Sign in to your Microsoft work or school account at https://account.activedirectory.windowsazure.com/profile.

  2. Under App permissions, find LinkedIn and select Remove these permissions.

To disconnect and remove data sharing permissions from your LinkedIn account:

  1. Select the Me icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.

  2. Select Settings & Privacy from the dropdown.

  3. Under the Partners and services section of the Account tab, click Change next to Microsoft.

  4. Select Remove next to Your Microsoft Account at <your work or school name>.
