When I connect to my LinkedIn's account from China, LinkedIn displays the following message:
You must provide a mobile number as primary and confirm receipt of our text. Due to local law, we must confirm your identity before you use our Services.
learn more button indicates:
In some countries, local laws require that we confirm your identity before letting you engage with our Services. You must provide a mobile number and confirm receipt of our text. This phone number will be associated with your account and is accessible from your settings. If you choose to change or delete your confirmed mobile number your ability to access our Services in certain countries (e.g. China) will be blocked until you once again confirm your identity.
You may receive account alerts, messages from recruiters, connection requests and other engagement SMS. You can change preferences at anytime.
If you want to change the bound phone number later, you can go to “Settings”-“Phone Numbers”-“Add Telephone Number”.
If you want to close your account, you can bind your phone number first and then go to “Settings”-“Close Account”.
Thank you for your understanding and support. If you have any questions during the process of binding your account to your phone number, please contact our Customer Services 400-010-6277.
