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.


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) Commented Jul 27, 2015 at 15:35

    In my case its not the digits, its the combination of upper and lower case alphabates and the length is 39.

  • I'm so sorry, but could you show where exactly on the Profile you have clicked to go to the page/tab you show here? Commented Jun 3, 2022 at 0:35

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.
