We are working hard to protect you, but there are also steps that you can take to protect yourself, such as:
Make sure you update your password on LinkedIn (and any site that you visit on the Web) at least once every few months.
Do not use the same password for multiple sites or accounts.
Create a strong password for your account, one that includes letters, numbers, and other characters.
Watch out for phishing emails and spam emails requesting personal or sensitive information.
Do yourself a favor and change your LinkedIn password. Now. #ijustdid
