LinkedIn’s partnership with Microsoft Entra and CLEAR is designed to enhance digital safety and trust on the platform. The new workplace credential verification system called Verified ID will allow users to verify their workspaces using their corporate email address or their LinkedIn profile. This will help to ensure that users are who they say they are and that they are affiliated with the organizations they claim to be.
The partnership is also expected to help to reduce the number of fake profiles on LinkedIn. Fake profiles can be used for a variety of malicious purposes, such as phishing, spamming, and spreading misinformation. By verifying users’ identities, LinkedIn can help to make its platform a safer and more trusted environment for professionals.
The partnership is currently available to users in the United States. LinkedIn plans to expand the partnership to other regions in the future.
Here are some of the benefits of the LinkedIn-Microsoft Entra-CLEAR partnership:
- Increased trust and safety on the LinkedIn platform
- Reduced number of fake profiles
- Improved security for users
- Easier for users to verify their identities
- Increased opportunities for professional networking
This is a great partnership and I’m glad that LinkedIn is taking steps to improve the security and safety of its platform. This will be a valuable tool for professionals who want to verify their identities and connect with other professionals in a safe and secure environment.
