We have placed a temporary restriction on your account after seeing indications of the account being compromised and to prevent any activity on the account.* *Even though there are various scenarios that could explain the possibility of unauthorized access to a LinkedIn account, we often find that unauthorized account access can occur due to a compromised email account. While we assist you in regaining access to your account, one thing we recommend is that you change the password on your email account(s) as soon as possible. If your email service provider offers two-step verification, we recommend that you enable it.* *Due to the nature of this issue, we need to verify that you're the original owner of the account.

We're using this information solely to validate your identity and assist you with re-accessing your account. We'll remove all copies of identity you've provided once this specific issue is resolved.
