Connecting on LinkedIn Through QR Codes


The LinkedIn mobile app has added a QR Code to the profile page which allows you to extract contact information from other LinkedIn users and to connect easily. When you meet someone on the run, at industry events and want to connect, just open the LinkedIn app and scan their LinkedIn QR Code. This is a great feature but only available on the mobile app. Learn how to do this here:

How to use the LinkedIn QR code function.

a. Go to your LinkedIn app homepage. In the Home tab’s search bar, you will see your own QR code.



b. Tap on the QR code and you’ll see a QR scanner as well as your own code.



c. Scan your new contact’s QR code. This will take you to their profile.
