By teaming with CLEAR in the US and Microsoft Entra, LinkedIn has offered a new means to authenticate user identities and employment roles for free. Users are given verification marks.
In an era of cost-cutting LinkedIn has developed a plan to extend its appeal by providing free verification marks to users. The program tries to prevent phony profiles, which frustrate users and are frequently used for spam.
LinkedIn would only work with CLEAR in the US to confirm a user's phone number and government ID. The 'Connect' and 'Message' buttons will move beneath a new section called 'Verifications' once the verification procedure is finished.
Only 4,000 firms now use LinkedIn's workplace email verification technique, and freelancers and independent contractors are not eligible for the program.
The free verification techniques will reportedly expand to more regions in the future, according to LinkedIn Vice President Oscar Rodriguez, giving users stronger connections and more job chances.
