Improve Your LinkedIn Security

As many of you have heard there was a data breach (in 2012) of LinkedIn announced a short time (May 18) ago of more than 100 million member’s email and passwords. You should have received an email from LinkedIn earlier this week regarding the breach (I did).

In light of this breach, it is a good idea to change your password and consider adding two-factor authentication. The article “How to toughen your LinkedIn account’s security in light of hack” goes step-by-step through the process to both change your password and institute two-factor authentication.

I just followed those steps myself. The process is quick and easy. As always with passwords, be sure that you both use a strong password and save it in a password manager.
