Amid a myriad of Twitter account and website hackings, two-step verification has become an increasingly popular inclusion: just in the last ten days, both Evernote and Twitter have begun rolling it out. Now LinkedIn is the latest to add two-step verification as an optional security feature for its users. If the option is enabled, LinkedIn members will be required to enter both their traditional password and the contents of a text message each time they log into the service on a new device. The feature can enabled through users' security settings page, and it should be available for everyone today.
