LinkedIn recently announced new verification features that are designed to make the platform more secure and trustworthy. These features include:
- ID verification: This feature allows users to verify their identity by providing a government-issued ID and a phone number. Once verified, users will receive a blue checkmark badge next to their name, which indicates that their identity has been confirmed.
- Work email verification: This feature allows users to verify their work email address by providing a code that is sent to their work email account. Once verified, users will be able to display their company name and title on their profile.
- Workplace verification: This feature allows users to verify their workplace by providing a code that is sent to their company’s Microsoft Entra tenant. Once verified, users will be able to display their company’s logo on their profile.
These new verification features are available to all LinkedIn members and are free to use. They are a valuable tool for users who want to ensure that their information on LinkedIn is accurate and trustworthy.
In addition to these new verification features, LinkedIn also announced a number of other security measures that are being implemented to protect users from fraud. These measures include:
- Enhanced spam and phishing detection: LinkedIn is using new artificial intelligence (AI) technology to detect and block spam and phishing messages.
- Improved account security: LinkedIn is making it easier for users to reset their passwords and to recover their accounts if they are compromised.
- Increased transparency: LinkedIn is providing more information to users about how their data is being used and how they can protect their privacy.
These new security measures are designed to make LinkedIn a safer and more secure platform for users. They are a welcome addition to the platform and will help to protect users from fraud and other online threats.
