How to Delete a LinkedIn Contact
Today I accidentally touched the Accept button on a LinkedIn spam request. Then I had to go searching for how to remove a contact, which is not obvious. Here are the steps I found that worked:
- First, select the Network tab on the top menu bar. This shows you the list of all of your contacts.
- Unfortunately, the list is in no particular order. So the next step is to change the sort order by clicking the down arrow next to Sort by and selecting New. This will put your latest connection at the top of the list.
- Now you have two options: (1) Check the box next to the contact you want to remove, then click the arrow next to the top More option. There you can select Remove connection from the drop-down list. (2) Alternatively, when you hover over an individual contact, a menu of options appears at the bottom of the contact item. There you can click the arrow next to the lower More option and select Remove connection from the drop-down list.
- That’s it! You have successfully removed your spam contact.
