Getting verified

If your company has issued you an email address or uses Microsoft Entra, it is possible to confirm your workplace on LinkedIn. This confirmation can be achieved by using your company-issued email address or accessing Entra if your organization already uses this platform.

For non-US citizens seeking verification, the option of verification via company email is available. Nevertheless there is a condition that the company you work for should be one of the 4,000+ companies that are supported for this purpose. The Microsoft Entra verification, initially offered to two million LinkedIn members, will be available at the end of April.
