Become a verified professional on LinkedIn, all you need is your TrueProof! The coveted stamp of approval which is found on many social media platforms, verifying the legitimacy of the account, has finally been launched for LinkedIn. This enables our network of verified, trusted global professionals to present their authenticated documents to their peers on LinkedIn.
We got tired of waiting for LinkedIn to launch their verified profile feature which is found on many other platforms, including Twitter and Instagram…so we launched our own! TrueProfile.io members can now showcase their verified credentials on LinkedIn, positioning themselves as professional influencers and further establishing their place within their industry.
Simply link a professional statement on LinkedIn with the corresponding TrueProof to cement the trustworthiness of your profile. For example, if you have listed your degree on your LinkedIn profile, you can simply link your education TrueProof with this statement and enable peers, authorities and potential employers to view your verified certificate. Here’s an example of how this will be displayed on LinkedIn:
How does a verified LinkedIn profile help my career?
Until now, there were no means of authenticating the information you presented on your LinkedIn profile. Ultimately, anyone can make a professional declaration on LinkedIn and recruiters, peers, employers, and authorities did not have the means to instantly verify if these claims were accurate.
With the new TrueProfile.io seal of approval on LinkedIn, you can provide links to your verified credentials to set you apart from the crowd. Adding this layer of authenticity to your profile will help build instant trust with profile viewers. This benefits all of our members, whether they are actively searching for a new job, are keen to hear about new opportunities or simply want to position themselves as a verified professional within their industry. The TrueProfile.io verified seal of approval will bolster candidates’ visibility within the market, regardless of the stage they are at in their career journey.

Your TrueProof will now appear like this, verifying the corresponding statement on LinkedIn:
Anyone who clicks on this link will be taken to your TrueProof and will be able to verify its authenticity.
Who can view my TrueProof on LinkedIn?
If you have granted access to your TrueProof using the toggle function, anyone with the link will be able to view and authenticate the document. So, if you choose to post this on LinkedIn your TrueProof can be viewed by your connections and (depending on your settings) anyone who clicks on your profile.
What does this mean for my data?
No sensitive data will be visible on your TrueProof such as contact information, your case number or passport number.
What if I don’t want to share it anymore?
If you decide you want to stop sharing your TrueProof, simply toggle the access settings to off (the toggle will appear grey) and the TrueProof will no longer be accessible from that link. As shown below, anyone who clicks the link can request access to the TrueProof and will only be able to see it once you have chosen to share it with that individual.
