Microsoft-owned LinkedIn is introducing a free verification system that enables users to authenticate their identity and their workplace. Users can verify their identity using CLEAR or Microsoft’s Entra verified ID platform. They can also verify their workplace by using a company-issued email address or through Entra if their organization uses it. Unlike other social media platforms, LinkedIn’s verification system is free, and users who pay for CLEAR can display that their identity is verified on their LinkedIn profile using a US government-issued ID and phone number.
