I haven't found any option to delete my LinkedIn account. Is there a way to do so?

You need to:

  1. Log in to your LinkedIn account
  2. Select Settings from the arrow drop down in the top right

    Settings - LinkedIn

  3. Then click the Account tab and select Close your Account LinkedIn-CloseAccount

Fortunately we are not dealing with humans here !! Go ahead and "close the account" -- as per numerous blogs. However, you need to create a second (accessible) email ([email protected] etc). Change everything in your profile to "XXXX" - except zipcodes and other "flags" Respond to their so called security email as "approved" Go into your profile and make this "XXXX@etc your primary email Wait 24 hrs and now delete your real email. While it doesn't get rid of your data (for one year) at least you stop getting their spam !! Bottom line -- stay AWAY from ANY social media - if you want to have a (private) life !!
