Support » Plugin: WP LinkedIn Auto Publish » LinkedIn Account Restricted

  • Resolved wimonews


    Hello. I was very happy to finally find a plugin that would automatically post to Auto Connected Car News, a company account managed by my personal LinkedIn account on LinkedIn directly from After using your plugin for about a week. My LinkedIn account has been restricted and I had to upload my drivers license and it has not been open for over a day.

    When I try to login I get this message

    Access to your account has been temporarily restricted
    Why did this happen?

    We take proactive actions to protect you when we detect potential unauthorized access or other activity that doesn’t comply with our policies.
    What can I do next?

    We first need to verify your identity to ensure your account safety. To regain access to your account, please submit a government-issued ID. Your ID will be deleted once we verify your identity.

    After we’ve reviewed your account, a customer support representative will contact you to provide more details about the activity involved and let you know if the access restriction has been lifted.

    This is very upsetting because I have close to 2,000 contacts and followers on LinkedIn. I uploaded my Drivers’ License which seems suspicious and I have not heard back since 5:00 pm Tuesday. It is now 6:00 pm Wednesday PDT.

    Please note I also use Jetpack to post my personal LinkedIn account automatically.
    1. I’m thinking maybe using two services caused the problem?
    2. Is your plugin in violation of LinkedIn policies?

    If you have any way to help me with this matter, I would greatly appreciate it. I am who say I am. Plus my LinkedIn account has been totally removed from the internet. I tried contacting LinkedIn Support via Twitter to no avail.

    Hi @wimonews,

    Our app doesn’t violate LinkedIn policies. This seems like an account issue, so just follow the prompts by LinkedIn. I have had issues like this happen before with Facebook.

    It was frustrating—This is what I got back.

    “I’m sorry for the delay and any inconvenience this has caused. I truly appreciate your patience.

    We placed a restriction on your account in error, but you should be able to access it now.

    If you still can’t sign in, please let me know and I’ll help you get access to your account right away.
