LinkedIn has introduced a new way to make sure job recruiters are real, aiming to stop scams. This system includes a validation, and then gives recruiters a special checkmark to show they’re verified, helping users avoid fake job offers that try to steal personal information. Simple enough, the recruiters get verified through their work email or with LinkedIn’s partners, like CLEAR, making LinkedIn safer. The goal is to catch the few scam accounts that slip through. This is an important step to squash bad guys, and keep the platform as safe as possible for people who may become vulnerable during a time of job hunting.

LinkedIn will start verifying job recruiters’ profiles amid a rising number of scams targeting users.
