Don’t let your boss steal your LinkedIn profile….

For many of us using LinkedIn, we add our work email addresses so contacts can find us. It also helps us manage inbound notifications at work.

But, when you gracefully depart, or worse, are “laid off”, you may forget to remove your work email address from LinkedIn. This means whoever is managing your email address has access to your LinkedIn account, data, and connections. A big no-no ?

Follow these simple steps to update your approved emails in LinkedIn:

1. Click on the “Me” link on the top bar of LinkedIn
2. Click on “Settings and Privacy”
3. Under “Login and security” click “Email addresses”
4. Add/remove applicable email addresses

Now you can sleep safe and sound tonight ?
