LinkedIn Introduces Intro, allows them to read all your e-mail
LinkedIn the Online Social Networking site for business has recently introduced a new feature for the iPhone. Aside from integrating itself within the iPhone e-mail system, this new service claims to be a security feature by reading your email and then attaching a banner to your messages saying that the sender of your message is in your LinkedIn network. There are many features like this that already exist, however, what is different in this instance is that your email goes through LinkedIn’s server first and not through an app on your phone. LinkedIn has historically had problems with password control and have been implicated in a class action lawsuit with regard to e-mail hacking.
Please do not enable Intro on your phones, if you have please disable and change passwords for your NDSU credentials.
