Starting from March 1, 2019 LinkedIn is making some changes in their API that will affect sign in with LinkedIn functionality on your website.

Here are the steps you’ll need to do the make sure sign in with Linked is still functioning on your site:

Insert your website URL in your Linked app > Auth > OAuth 2.0 settings

Please ensure that your redirect URL does not have a trailing slash.

Moreover, please be aware that LinkedIn is reducing the amount of user data it shares with you. The only pieces of information that will be available from LinkedIn when the “Sign In with LinkedIn” option is chosen are: Picture, E-mail, First Name, and Last Name.
