LinkedIn and CLEAR Continue to Enhance Digital Safety, Expand Free Identity Verification to Canada's LinkedIn Users
Today's expansion marks the first international launch of CLEAR Verified
NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- LinkedIn, the world's largest professional network, and CLEAR (NYSE: YOU), the secure identity company, announced today they are expanding digital safety and trust by empowering LinkedIn members in Canada to verify their identity with CLEAR for free. From the LinkedIn app, a member can affirm their identity with the CLEAR Verified (formerly known as Powered by CLEAR) platform, and add a visible indicator to their LinkedIn profile showing the member's identity has been verified by CLEAR. Beginning this month, LinkedIn's 22 million Canada-based members will have the option to verify their identity with CLEAR in English or French, using their government-issued ID and a selfie. Existing CLEAR users will simply be prompted to snap a selfie to verify their identity for use on their LinkedIn profile. To verify your identity with CLEAR, click here.
Today's announcement marks the CLEAR Verified platform's first move into an international market. Earlier this year, CLEAR and LinkedIn launched free identity verification for LinkedIn's 206 million U.S.-based members. The partnership provides consumers and businesses with additional comfort that the people they encounter on LinkedIn are real and represented authentically. For more information, click here.
