LinkedIn Learning discontinuing Internet Explorer 11 support
Wednesday, May 6, 2020
LinkedIn Learning will no longer support Internet Explorer 11 across all products beginning July 1. This change is due to low usage and to ensure an optimal product experience for all members and customers.
LinkedIn recommends you change to a supported browser for the best experience. This includes the new Microsoft Edge browser, which offers Internet Explorer mode.
Members will still be able to access LinkedIn with IE11 through January 2021, but the experience may become suboptimal, and eventually they will be required to switch to a different browser.
To learn more about LinkedIn’s browser policy and the browsers that are supported, visited LinkedIn Help.
What does ‘not supporting IE11’ mean?
When LinkedIn stops supporting IE11 in July 2020, we will no longer be actively developing for IE11 or addressing IE11-specific bugs. Site-down issues or bugs that cause core product functionality to be unusable will be addressed through January 2021.
What communications will learners and admins receive?
Anyone accessing LinkedIn (including LinkedIn Learning and admin portals) through IE11 will see the following in-product banners:
- Pre July 1: "As of July 1, LinkedIn will no longer support the Internet Explorer 11 browser. For the best experience, please switch to one of our supported browsers."
- Post July 1: “LinkedIn no longer supports the Internet Explorer 11 browser. For the best experience,
please switch to one of our supported browsers."
What does this mean for learners?
Learners who are able should upgrade to the new Edge (Chromium) browser or use another supported browser to access LinkedIn Learning.
What does this mean for admins?
Organizations where learners are only able to use the IE11 browser will need to upgrade and deploy new Microsoft Edge or another supported browser.
