For those of you that have not seen the new security feature that LinkedIn is now providing, you can now see where you are logged in. Simply go to your ‘Privacy & Settings’ and click on ‘See Where You’re Logged In’. You will be taken to a list of all the places you’re currently signed in to LinkedIn. You can see details about each session, sign out of individual sessions, or sign out of everywhere at once.
LinkedIn is headed in the right direction in helping to make sure your account is secure. But you have to be aware of and take an active part in security measures as well.
What can you do to make sure your LinkedIn account is secure?
- Check your privacy settings (and everywhere you are logged in).
- Turn on two factor authentication.
- Regularly monitor your account activity.
Take a few minutes every day to take these precautions. It will be well worth it in the long run.
Another security feature is the ability to not have your email address available that are not 1st degree connections through the address book import. You can email the LinkedIn support teams to be manually opted out. Perhaps that will be an option for each of us individually in the future.
It’s up to you to protect your profile, your network, and your information. Be proactive and take the time to implement your own security measures. Your network will thank you for your due diligence.
I invite you to comment, provide feedback, and any issues you may have come across that we may be able to help you with. I will do my very best to respond to your comment in a timely manner.
- Be the first to give to your new business relationships
- Always pay it forward
- Network with purpose.
Good luck and good networking! Remember… It’s All About Leverage.
