Never send your email address, username or password to anyone who requests it via email message. LinkedIn will never ask you to send them your credentials, personal or financial information via email message.

LinkedIn users can protect themselves from phishing scams, by going directly to www.linkedin.com and sign into their accounts, instead of clicking on a link in an email message. Any security updates, notifications or information will be displayed to them once they have signed into their accounts.
