After hearing the news of a user who posted on a Russian forum that he or she had hacked Linkedin’s database, I think it’s time to change my password — as should you.
It may not be all that bad, because like me, you have been using the same password for years and needed to update it anyway. Now, for those who use that auto password thing, you may need to reset it immediately, because there’s a great chance that you don’t even know what it is.
Anyhow, here’s how to change your Linkedin password:
First, log onto Linkedin.
In the top right of the toolbar, where your name is, hover over it and select Settings.
Look down under your profile picture and find Password and click on Change.
An overlay titled, Change Your Password will appear. You will have to enter your old password once and your new one twice, to confirm.
**Let’s just hope that you do remember your password**
Once you click Change Password, you’re done.
There you have it! Now remember to change it every six months, I mean just in case.
Happy job hunting!
