We are introducing a new optional feature that adds another layer of security to your LinkedIn sign-in: two-step verification. 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.

  • You have to receive a text every time you sign in? Or just once? Also, I don't want LinkedIN to sell on my mobile phone number... As they surely will. I get enough spam calls as it is! Do they promise not to sell details given as part of a security sign up...? Would be good to know (without having to wade through all their small print).
