LinkedIn offers free identification and employment verification.

On Wednesday, LinkedIn introduced new identity and employment verification methods. LinkedIn’s new verification doesn’t need paid memberships or blue checkmarks like Twitter and Meta.

LinkedIn CLEAR verifies US users, a secure identity platform. Starting this month, individuals can post CLEAR identification verification on their profiles. You’ll need a government-issued ID and phone number.

Verifying your identity adds a “Verifications” section under the “Connect” and “Message” buttons to your profile. In addition, your profile will show a checkmark next to a “Government ID” banner if you have “a verified government ID.”

LinkedIn members worldwide may verify their work email. Enter a corporate email verification code to verify your employment. Over 4,000 LinkedIn firms use this function. The platform will add additional firms to this choice.

LinkedIn has teamed with Microsoft to give free digital workplace IDs to eligible users using the Microsoft Entra Verified ID platform. This month’s choice will launch. LinkedIn will provide this to dozens of firms with over two million members.

“Through all these new, free features, we’re helping give you the confidence that who you’re connecting with and the content you come across is trusted and authentic,” the business noted in a blog post. We will gradually make these verification options available to all LinkedIn members worldwide. We’ll keep you informed when we add additional features like these.”

LinkedIn adopted phone and email verification last October. Unfortunately, these two verification methods don’t appear on your profile with badges like the new ones presented today.

LinkedIn’s verification tools focus on verifying users’ identities to defend against false or scam accounts, unlike Twitter and Meta, which include other functions. For example, Twitter’s $8-per-month Blue membership includes premium verification and fewer advertisements. Meta Verified, available on Instagram and Facebook, costs $11.99 per month on the desktop and $14.99 on mobile.

LinkedIn’s verification capabilities are free because it thinks everyone should be verified.
