LinkedIn has introduced two-step verification as an optional security feature for its members, following the Twitter’s suit.
It announced in its blog post : “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.”
This new optional feature adds another layer of security to your LinkedIn sign-in.
