How to Withdraw Sent Connection Requests on LinkedIn?
If someone doesn’t accept my connection request on LinkedIn, I feel better to remove the request. To know how many connection requests you’ve sent till now on LinkedIn that are not accepted by the receivers, you can go through the following steps and withdraw the sent connection requests that are no more meaningful to you.
If you’re browsing LinkedIn on your desktop and would like to withdraw sent connection requests, follow the steps below:
- Log in to your LinkedIn account and click on My Network from the top navigation.
- Now, on the My Network page, click Manage from the right side of the screen.
- On the next screen for “Manage invitations“, you’ll see two tabs; Received and Sent. The Received tab shows the received connection invitations and the Sent tab shows the sent connection requests that are not yet accepted by the recipients.
- Now, click the Sent tab. It will show you all the sent connection requests you’ve sent till now. To withdraw any of these sent connection requests, just click on Withdraw button in front of the member name. For the confirmation popup, again click Withdraw button to confirm.
This is how you can withdraw a sent connection request on LinkedIn. Once you withdraw a connection request, it means you won’t be able to resend the request to that person for up to 3 weeks.
If you use LinkedIn on your smartphone using its mobile app, then go through the following steps to withdraw sent connection requests:
- Open your LinkedIn mobile app and tap on the My Network tab at the bottom menu.
- On the next screen, tap on the Invitations link.
- Here you’ll see two tabs; Received and Sent (just as described for the desktop version).
- Tap the Sent tab and tap Withdraw link in front of the member name. And then just like the desktop version, again tap on Withdraw for the popup confirmation.
That’s all about withdrawing a sent connection request through the LinkedIn mobile app. Whether you’re using an Android smartphone or iPhone, the steps are the same as described above.
