Many people use LinkedIn to showcase their skills, connect with other professionals, and find new opportunities.

But what if you want to cancel your LinkedIn Premium subscription?

Maybe you don’t need the extra features, or you want to save some money, or you just want to try something else.

Whatever the reason, you can cancel your LinkedIn Premium subscription anytime, and we’ll show you how in this article.

What is LinkedIn Premium?

LinkedIn Premium is a paid subscription that offers a range of benefits and features for different purposes and goals.

There are four main types of LinkedIn Premium subscriptions:

  1. Premium Career: This is for job seekers who want to stand out from the crowd, get personalized job recommendations, and access interview preparation tools. The cost is $29.99 per month.
  2. Premium Business: This is for business owners and leaders who want to grow their network, get insights into companies and industries, and access unlimited people browsing. The cost is $59.99 per month.
  3. Sales Navigator: This is for sales professionals who want to generate leads and build relationships with prospects and customers. There are three plans: Core, Advanced, and Advanced Plus, with prices ranging from $79.99 to $134.99 per month.
  4. Recruiter Lite: This is for recruiters and hiring managers who want to find and hire talent faster and easier. The cost is $119.95 per month.

All LinkedIn Premium subscriptions come with a one-month free trial, which you can cancel anytime before the trial ends.

You can also switch between different plans or cancel your subscription anytime after the trial.

How to Cancel LinkedIn Premium Subscription

If you want to cancel your LinkedIn Premium subscription, you can do so from the LinkedIn website or the LinkedIn mobile app.

Here are the steps to cancel your LinkedIn Premium subscription:

From the LinkedIn website

  •  Click the Me icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.
  • Select Premium features from the dropdown.
  • Click Manage Subscription under Premium Account and Features.
  • You’ll be redirected to the Manage Premium account settings page.
  • Click Cancel subscription.
  • Follow the prompts to complete the cancellation.

From the LinkedIn mobile app

  • Tap your profile picture at the top left corner of the screen.
  • Tap the Settings icon at the top right corner of the screen.
  • Tap Account preferences. Tap Manage subscription. Tap Cancel subscription.
  • Follow the prompts to complete the cancellation.

Note that if you cancel your LinkedIn Premium subscription, you will lose access to all the Premium features at the end of your current billing cycle.

You will also lose any unused InMail credits, which are messages that you can send to anyone on LinkedIn.

However, you will still keep your profile, connections, and other data.

How to Get a Refund for LinkedIn Premium

According to the LinkedIn refund policy, LinkedIn Premium subscriptions are non-refundable, except in certain cases where the law requires a refund.

For example, if you live in the European Union, you are entitled to a full refund during the 14 days after the subscription begins.

However, this 14-day period begins when the subscription service starts, not when you pay for it.

So, if you signed up for a one-month free trial, you will not get a refund, since the 14-day period has already passed.

If you believe that your situation warrants an exception, you can submit your account for review and request a refund.

LinkedIn will review your request and decide whether to grant you a refund or not.

However, there is no guarantee that you will get a refund, so it is better to cancel your subscription before the next billing date to avoid getting charged.


LinkedIn Premium can be a useful tool for advancing your career, growing your business, or finding talent.

However, if you decide that you don’t need it anymore, you can cancel your LinkedIn Premium subscription anytime and go back to the free version.

You can also request a refund, but only in certain cases and with no guarantee.
