Are you a rebel who activates the dark mode on all your applications? Well, today we’re going to talk about Dark Mode LinkedIn.

It’s THE trend of the moment, and dark mode can be seen 👀 everywhere.

From software to websites, almost all online services feature the famous black background. It’s not a gothic phase we assure you, dark mode has been brought up to date thanks to users’ infatuation with it. And icing 🍒 on the cake, dark mode offers a number of advantages that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Let’s see what LinkedIn has to say and learn how to set dark mode on :

  • Mobile IOS.
  • Desktop.
  • Android mobile.

Why use Dark mode LinkedIn?

We’re already familiar with dark mode on messaging platforms ✉️ and other social networks such as Facebook & Co. And mind you, we’re talking about dark mode, not night mode (although when it’s dark, chances are it’s night, but we digress).

There’s a lot less talk about LinkedIn’s dark mode. This is understandable, as the professional social network took its time before releasing this mode. And in doing so, LinkedIn gives its 850 million members the option of choosing their display preferences from two modes:

  • Dark mode.
  • Light mode.

However, this is not one of the many extensions offered by search browsers. No, it’s a feature of LinkedIn.

There are many advantages ✅ to using dark mode (not just on LinkedIn) such as:

  • 1️⃣ Increase the autonomy of your device 📱(technically, the higher the brightness, the higher the power required by the device).
  • 2️⃣ Reduce energy consumption (some colors really do consume a lot of energy on a screen, and it’s worth noting that at maximum brightness, black consumes almost no energy unlike white).
  • 3️⃣ Reduce eyestrain (we live in an ultra-connected world, where all our little eyes are glued to a screen, whether it’s a computer or a phone, and white light is composed in part of blue light 🔵 the same light that disrupts our sleep cycles…).

How to set LinkedIn’s dark theme on Desktop

We’re now moving on to changing your display preference on the computer, whether you’re on Mac os with a Macbook or under Windows, it’s all the same.

We’ll show you step-by-step how to change the display of your theme on your LinkedIn account. It doesn’t really change from what we’ve already seen on mobile devices 📲 Android and IOS.
