The blue ticks are coming on LinkedIn, they will be free for verified profiles

As with all other social networks, the time has come LinkedIn to add the blue ticks for verified profiles. They will be free and associated with the company you work for. Here are details.

Blue ticks on LinkedIn, to confirm the identity of the professionals

An element that differentiates the introduction of blue checks on LinkedIn is that, unlike the social networks Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, they will be free. They will be released when the Microsoft-owned social network ascertains that the professional is really who he claims to be on the network.

There are three ways to verify your profile. The first is based on the use of Clear, a US authentication platform, which uses the identification card number and a mobile phone number registered in the US. The second is through a company email address. While the third is based on the Microsoft Sign In service, a login system similar to the Outlook for business version. LinkedIn will highlight verifications with a check mark on profiles.

On the other hand, verification via company email is accessible to all LinkedIn users, as long as they work at one of the 4,000 companies supported by the social network itself. As for the Microsoft Sign in verification, it will be launched at the end of this month. Based on open standards, Entra can run on various entity systems.

“Online authenticity has never been more important,” she said Alex Weinert, vice president of identity security at Microsoft, in an interview with The Verge. “We have seen a steady increase in fraudulent submissions over the last few years, with people pretending to be someone else. We need a system that gives us the validity of the professional we are talking to, also to certify the presence of an online company”.
