How to link your existing user account to LinkedIn¶
If you have registered using an email address and password instead of using LinkedIn or you registered for the site before we launched the sign in with LinkedIn functionality it is now possible to link up your accounts.
Follow these steps to link up your existing Akademia account with your LinkedIn account.
Sign into the website using your email address and password. Once signed in click on your avatar in the top right of the top navigation bar. From here click on the "My Profile" link.
From you profile page look for the blue button labelled "To link your LinkedIn account click here". Once you have clicked this you will be redirected to LinkedIn where you can sign in and then authorise the data share. Once linked you will be sent back to the Akademia website.
From now you will be able to directly sign in to your existing Akademia account using the 'Sign in with LinkedIn' option which will appear on any places needed to sign in with a password.
Identity is registered to another user
If you receive the error message shown above, this means that an Akademia account has already been linked to your LinkedIn Account. It may be that you have multiple accounts with similar email addresses, or that you have changed your email address. In this case, you should contact us, we will be able to assist you in identifying the account that has been linked, and resolving the issue for you by merging your accounts.
