Is it possible to perform a full export of a complete Linkedin profile?

I want to make several changes, and I'd like to have a "backup" of sorts, just for the sake of keep my data and not lose it.

I don't care about the output format (namely, I don't necessarily need a PDF), what matters to me is to have a backup of my data.

Apparently it was easier than I expected, the process is described here.

To request a download of your data:

  • Click the Me icon at top of your LinkedIn homepage.
  • Select Settings & Privacy from the dropdown.
  • Click the Privacy tab at the top of the page.
  • Under How LinkedIn uses your data section, click Change next to Download your data. Note: You may be prompted to sign in.

  • This will take you to the Download your data page where you can select which data you want to download

Within minutes, you'll receive an email with a link where you can download certain categories of personal information we have for you, including your messages, connections, and contacts. This is information that's fastest to compile.

Within 24 hours, we'll send you a second email with a link where you can download your full archive, including your activity and account history.
