Dark Mode For LinkedIn

Table of Contents

LinkedIn’s dark mode fights eye strain & saves your battery on your device.

Microsoft’s social network joined Twitter, Facebook, and Google in rolling out its official dark theme.

Some web browsers let you enable dark mode, including Chrome, but you may prefer to use a darker palette for certain apps & sites.

The LinkedIn website has its dark mode on the mobile app & in the browser.

What Is Dark Mode?

White text (or light gray text) against a black or dark background is called dark mode, as opposed to black text against a white background in light mode.

There are a lot of names for dark modes, like dark theme, night mode, black mode, etc. It helps reduce eye strain & lack of sleep by reducing the amount of blue light your phone emits. 

If dark mode has been rolled out to your account, you’ll see a section called ‘Display’ below the ‘Profile Info’ section. 

What Is Light Mode?

Light mode is the standard default theme LinkedIn & most websites have for users. It will have dark text against a white background.

How To Enable LinkedIn Dark Mode (Mobile)

Tap your profile picture on the LinkedIn app, then tap ‘Settings.’ Go to the ‘Account Preferences’ tab. Under ‘Display,’ click ‘Dark Mode.’ 

You can select: ‘Device Settings:’ LinkedIn mobile app settings will look like device settings. 

Turn on LinkedIn’s ‘Dark Mode’ option. The ‘Light Mode’ is selected by default. Changes will be saved automatically.

When you tap dark mode, it will remain enabled at all times. Get the latest version of the LinkedIn mobile app by updating your mobile device.

Benefits of LinkedIn Dark Mode

Users appreciate dark mode because it gives you more autonomy than light mode. Dark mode will save battery life because the brightness is lower & the colors are duller.

When you activate dark mode, you save 30% battery! Eye fatigue is reduced.

Since dark mode is an inverted color scheme, it’s like reading a white article on a black background instead of a black article on a white background.
