LinkedIn partners with CLEAR to offer new verification options for users
LinkedIn has announced new identity verification features for its members that aim to make it easier to confirm who you are on the platform. Unlike the blue checkmarks used on other social media platforms, LinkedIn’s verification process won’t cost users anything. Instead, the company is partnering with CLEAR, the same company that gets travelers to the front of security lines, to verify that the name on your ID matches the name on your profile. While the service is free, users will need to share a US phone number and government-issued ID to take advantage of the feature.
