If you want to remove a connection on LinkedIn, you can follow these steps:
- Go to your LinkedIn homepage and click on the “My Network” tab at the top of the page.
- Find the connection you want to remove and click on their profile.
- On their profile page, click on the three dots in the top right corner and select “Remove connection” from the drop-down menu.
- LinkedIn will ask you to confirm that you want to remove the connection. Click “Remove” to confirm.
After you remove the connection, they will no longer be able to see your activity on LinkedIn or send you messages. Note that the person you removed won’t be notified that you removed them as a connection, but they may notice that you are no longer connected if they try to view your profile or message you.
Sometimes you want to remove someone from your professional life, but you also want to do it in a manner that avoids resentment or ridicule. As a result, LinkedIn offers a feature that allows you to delete a connection without potentially hurting or destroying relationships.
- Start by clicking My Network at the top of your profile tab.
- LinkedIn page with the phrase “My Network” in bold
- Once there, select Manage my network and then glance to the left for the Connections option. This will take you to a list of every relationship you’ve ever made on LinkedIn.
- Now use the search feature to locate the individual you want to disconnect from.
- Use their name, employer, and other identifying information to narrow down your search for the correct contact.
Once you’ve found the person you’re looking for, select the three dots next to the Messages button on the right side of their listing to reveal the Remove connection option by looking there.
- To remove that individual from your network, select Remove Connection.
- By selecting Delete, you’re indicating your choice. Facebook will not send a notification to the subject.
