Top Tip from another customer
If your email and password are changed on the account then there is no way to recover the account. This company has a very strict policy with recovering accounts and if anything is different then you cannot recover the account. You must have the original email or phone number on the account.
The issue in GetHuman1891677's own words
The email my linked in account was originally saved under (*****@***.com) was hacked. I no longer have access to that email and would like to just transfer my linked in account and save it under my new email (*****@***.com). Every time I follow the steps online that are supposed to allow me to change this, I receive an email that says "click here to update your password" and then it sends me to a site where I put my new email and says it will send me a link and I don*t get one. I've been trying different passwords that I always use and waiting for this second email I'm supposed to get for over two hours now with no luck. I'm assuming my linked in account was also hacked after my email was because my instagram and facebook were also. I need to have all of my information saved under my new email of *****@***.com and access from the *****@***.com email restricted asap as this is the only site that I have all of my work history and personal info saved to and need it to apply for jobs. I can't just create a whole new account knowing that someone has access to my current account that shouldn't.
