Recently, the database of LinkedIn accounts compromised in 2012 was released for public sale with many decrypted passwords. Read more on that here.In response to this event, and to help prevent your LinkedIn account from becoming a pivot point to other systems like your mobile device or corporate email, we suggest updating your password on LinkedIn to a unique password. Also, any other sites on which you may have used the same password as your 2012 LinkedIn password should be changed.

As an additional layer of protection, please consider turning on LinkedIn 2-step verification. Information on this feature and instructions on how to do so can be found here.
