How can I find the (numeric) ID of my LinkedIn account when I have already set a public profile URL?

Public URL setting

The ID would part of the URL, but it is not there now that I have a public profile URL. Is it somewhere in a settings page (I tried to look in "Privacy & Settings")? Or is there some other way to find it without changing the LinkedIn profile (as there is a risk of losing the already-assigned public profile URL - breaking links on other sites)?

Once you're logged in enter image description here

This will bring up a new URL in the browser which looks something like this.

https://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=46036342&trk=hp-identity-name

In my case from the above URL, the ID is 46036342

  • It may not seem so at first (perhaps one would expect the ID to come from a profile URL such as dk.linkedin.com/pub/nils-færgeman/1/b7b/20 where a public profile URL has not been set), but you are correct: It is in fact the ID (at least what they are asking for at the profile settings page at codeproject.com where the origin of my question is) – Peter Mortensen Jul 27 '15 at 15:35

    In my case its not the digits, its the combination of upper and lower case alphabates and the length is 39. – serenesat Aug 22 '15 at 16:06

If you're looking for the ID of a company page, for example, try clicking 'Manage Page' and then the ID numbers will be in the URL.
