Usage is simple, just import "LinkedInHelper.h" to your controller where you want to use this library:

If you want to login user with LinkedIn Api, so you can easily fetch your informations like below:

#import "LinkedInHelper.h"

@implementation ViewController

- (void)fetchUserInformations {        

    LinkedInHelper *linkedIn = [LinkedInHelper sharedInstance];

    linkedIn.cancelButtonText = @"Close"; // Or any other language But Default is Close

    NSArray *permissions = @[@(BasicProfile),

    linkedIn.showActivityIndicator = YES;

#warning - Your LinkedIn App ClientId - ClientSecret - RedirectUrl

    [linkedIn requestMeWithSenderViewController:self
                                       clientId:@""         // Your App Client Id
                                   clientSecret:@""         // Your App Client Secret
                                    redirectUrl:@""         // Your App Redirect Url
                                          state:@""               // Your client state
                                successUserInfo:^(NSDictionary *userInfo) {
                                    // Whole User Info
                                    NSLog(@"user Info : %@", userInfo);
                                failUserInfoBlock:^(NSError *error) {
                                    NSLog(@"error : %@", error.userInfo.description);


You can check if LinkedIn Access Token is still valid like below:

- (BOOL)isLinkedInAccessTokenValid {
    return [LinkedInHelper sharedInstance].isValidToken;

You can fetch user Informations automatically without getting authorization code again via web view.
This will automatically fetch use informations thanks to valid access token

-  (void)getUserInfo {

    LinkedInHelper *linkedIn = [LinkedInHelper sharedInstance];

    // If user has already connected via linkedin in and access token is still valid then
    // No need to fetch authorizationCode and then accessToken again!

    #warning - To fetch user info  automatically without getting authorization code, accessToken must be still valid

    if (linkedIn.isValidToken) {

        // So Fetch member info by elderyly access token
        [linkedIn autoFetchUserInfoWithSuccess:^(NSDictionary *userInfo) {
            // Whole User Info
            NSLog(@"user Info : %@", userInfo);
        } failUserInfo:^(NSError *error) {
            NSLog(@"error : %@", error.userInfo.description);

For more information please check the Demo App.
I tried to do my best in code by writing well documentation.

Customization Navigation Bar Of Authorization ViewController

You can customize app-wide Linkedin Auth View Controller Navigation Bar as shown below

  • Appearence Support

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {

    [[LinkedinAuthorizationNavBar appearance] setAuthTintColor:[UIColor redColor]];
    [[LinkedinAuthorizationNavBar appearance] setAuthBarIsTranslucent:TRUE];
    [[LinkedinAuthorizationNavBar appearance] setAuthBarTintColor:[UIColor lightGrayColor]];
    [[LinkedinAuthorizationNavBar appearance] setAuthTitle:@"Linkedin"];

    NSDictionary *titleAttributes = @{
    NSForegroundColorAttributeName:[UIColor blackColor],
    NSFontAttributeName:[UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:16]
    [[LinkedinAuthorizationNavBar appearance] setAuthBarTitleTextAttributes:titleAttributes];

    NSDictionary *cancelButtonAttr = @{
    NSForegroundColorAttributeName:[UIColor redColor],
    NSFontAttributeName:[UIFont boldSystemFontOfSize:14]
    [[LinkedinAuthorizationNavBar appearance] setAuthCancelButtonTitleTextAttributes:cancelButtonAttr];

    return YES;
