#Linkedin secure internet connection (https://)

Yesterday I urged you to start the dual step sign-in verification to your LinkedIn profile.

Today I suggest you add one more security step, the https:// secure internet connection to LinkedIn, especially when tapping into public wi-fi service. https2

You have no doubt used this on e-commerce sites whose URL begin with “https.”

Once again, LinkedIn has easy to follow instructions to make the change to a secure connection.  You set it once, and it will protect your LinkedIn activity wherever you go by encrypting the data interchange.

LinkedIn today announced it will soon make this a default setting, but did not give a timeframe.

It is clearly important. Please take a moment like I just did, to implement this right away.

I hope you never have to wish you had done this…
