If you’ve read our article on LinkedIn Premium, you know about all of the great features you can get with a subscription to a LinkedIn Premium account. But if you’ve signed up and then realized you don’t need all of the added features, or if you’ve already used it successfully to find a job, you may not need to pay for LinkedIn anymore, and simply want to leave your online resume up. If you need to learn how cancel LinkedIn Premium, you’ve come to the right place.
When you're all finished, click Done to return to your LinkedIn homepage. You will continue to have LinkedIn Premium features until the end of your billing cycle. Check out our detailed set of instructions below (with images) so you can understand each step a little better.
Any web browser will do the trick, so use your favorite web browser and enter www.linkedin.com in the address bar. Then, make sure you sign into your account.
Click Me on the main menu, and then click Premium Subscription Settings from the drop-down menu.
Locate your account type at the top-left of the settings options, and click Cancel Subscription.
You will see a table showing you what features you get with your current subscription, compared to a free LinkedIn account. If you want to continue, click Continue to Cancel. You can also click Stay Premium if you have a change of heart.
Choose a reason for why you want to cancel your Premium subscription by clicking one of the empty circles. Then click Confirm Cancellation.
When you're all finished and ready to go back to LinkedIn Free, click Done.
