LinkedIn Adds Two- Step Verification Feature To Its Accounts

linkedin logoIn a bid to improve the security of its’ members’ accounts, LinkedIn has added the two-step verification feature. This new optional feature aims to add another layer of security to the accounts of LinkedIn users. All LinkedIn accounts are already protected by a series of automatic checks that are designed to thwart unauthorized sign-in attempts.

Announcing this feature, the LinkedIn blog stated,” Most internet accounts that become compromised are illegitimately accessed from a new or unknown computer (or device). Two-step verification helps address this problem by requiring you to type a numeric code when logging in from an unrecognized device for the first time. This code will be sent to your phone via SMS. When enabled, two-step verification makes it more difficult for unauthorized users to access your account, requiring them to have both your password and access to your mobile phone.”
