There is an urgent need of changing your LinkedIn account passwords. I could see several reports pointing the possible leak of LinkdeIn database of Passwords which has been made available on a Russian forum in SHA-1 (hashed) format. I think the company is officially not confirmed or denied this news. So it’s time to change your LinkedIn passwords. It only take few minutes. Why to take risk?
How to Change LinkedIn Account Passwords?
You can quickly change your LinkedIn account passwords. For that follow the below few steps.
- Go to http://www.linkedin.com
- Log in with your email ID and LinkedIn password
- Click on your Name on the top right corner of the screen and click “Settings” and enter your Old and New passwords.
You will instantly greeted with a message saying “You have successfully changed your password”
Never ever use same passwords on your each and every online accounts. For example, in this case, your LinkedIn log in credentials leaked means the hackers can easily access your other accounts if you use same passwords every where. Your Gmail, Facebook, Twitter, Cloud Storage etc. accounts will also be in danger if you use the same password. So act immediately.
