A LinkedIn Premium account gives you access to features like InMail, premium insights on job postings and LinkedIn pages, and a full list of who's viewed your profile. LinkedIn Premium is a great service for recruiters and for individuals looking for a new job opportunity.

However, if you have signed up for a LinkedIn Premium subscription and no longer have a need for it, you can choose to cancel it at any time. Note that when you cancel your premium account, you will not be able to sign up for the one-month free trial again for another 12 months.

To cancel your LinkedIn premium subscription on a desktop browser:

1. Log onto your account at

2. Click on the 'Me' icon in the top right corner.

3. Select 'Premium Subscription Settings' from the drop-down list of choices.

4. Choose 'Manage Premium Account' in the top right.

5. Choose 'Continue to Cancel' button.

If you cannot find your subscription here, it can mean you purchased it from another vendor, such as iTunes.

If you purchased your subscription via the LinkedIn for iPhone app, follow these steps to cancel your LinkedIn premium subscription through iOS:

1. On your phone, go to your settings - your name - iTunes & App store.

2. Tap your Apple ID at the top of the screen.

3. Tap 'View Apple ID.' You may need to sign in to your Apple account at this point.

4. Scroll to your Subscriptions, then select it.

5. Tap the LinkedIn Premium subscription.

6. Use the 'Options' selection and choose cancel subscription.

To cancel your LinkedIn Premium subscription purchased via the Apple store, on a desktop, follow these steps:

1. Open iTunes.

2. At the top of the screen, choose 'Account' and then 'View My Account.'

3. Login to your account.

4. On the Account Information page, go to 'Settings' and to the right of the 'Subscriptions' click on 'Manage.'

5. Select 'Edit' and use the options to choose 'cancel subscription'.

Note that LinkedIn cannot cancel a Premium subscription purchased through the LinkedIn for iPhone app. You will need to contact Apple for refunds or payment inquiries.

If you do not see your subscription for your LinkedIn premium subscription on your Apple account this could be an indicator it is being billed through some other vendor than Apple. Click here to find out what to do if you still can't view your subscription.

At this time, you cannot cancel your LinkedIn premium subscription directly through an Android device. You will need to use a desktop to cancel instead.

Lastly, here is some more key information for when you cancel your LinkedIn premium subscription:

  • Your subscription will end with the current billing cycle. To avoid being charged for the next billing cycle, you will need to cancel the subscription at least one day prior to the billing date listed on your account. You can view that date here.
  • You will still have access to the Premium features until the end of the current billing cycle.
  • You will no longer have access to your InMail credit and they will not be granted back, even with the renewal of your Premium subscription later.
  • If you were on a Premium subscription that was a discounted or promoted rate, you will not have that rate again when you renew your Premium subscription. Instead, you will have to pay what the current rate of Premium subscriptions are at the time you renew.
  • You will not be able to delete your payment information in order to avoid paying for the current (and last) billing cycle
