Do you know who is logged onto your Linked-in?


As most users would be aware a few weeks ago Linked-in announced that they had suffered a data breach, and that as many at 117 million users' passwords may have been stolen. At the time it was recommended that users change their passwords.

Well like greased lightning I got onto it....four weeks later. But more interestingly when I was going into "Privacy & Settings" to change my password I also saw a setting/option called "Where you're signed in" and the number beside it read "6". ( why would I have 6 current connections? )

Within that option you can read the IP Addresses of where you are logged in and a few details (ie logged in via Chrome/ Mozilla / iOS) - I took a screen shot at the time and have sent it to an IT friend who says he can probably find out more about those log-ins in the next couple of days, the unusual ones may just turn out to be benign.....BUT!

Thus my recommendation for today is go in and see where (and how many times) you are logged in AND change your password (if you haven't already).


If you are concerned that yours could have been one of the passwords that were leaked, a site has been set-up called "haveIbeenpwned" and you can type in your email address and it will say whether you should be ok. www.haveibeenpwned.com
