LinkedIn has a two-step verification process to secure an account, so do other social platforms. It’s recommended for you to use a two-step verification process to protect your LinkedIn account.
If you’re using LinkedIn for your business communication you might as well enable a two-step verification process. This can keep an unauthorized person from accessing your LinkedIn account.
Since LinkedIn helps you connect to business and your fellow employees, you won’t want someone to come in and distract your creation you’ve successfully built. To set up your account you will need to go to your account settings.
Your phone number is used to keep your account secure, it’s what you use for your two-step verification process. Before you can set up a two-step verification process for your account you need to add your phone number.
