Merge contact cards

If you have more than one card for a contact in an account, you can merge the cards. Merging cards combines the cards and keeps all the unique information in a single card.

Open Contacts for me

  • Look for duplicates: Choose Card > Look for Duplicates.

  • Merge duplicate cards that are found: Select the cards you want to merge, then choose Card > Merge Selected Cards.

When you use several accounts in Contacts, you may end up with several cards for a contact—for example, one card from LinkedIn and one from Google. You can link the contact’s cards to streamline your list of contacts without merging the cards.
