LinkedIn is the latest website to add two-factor authentication as a measure to prevent account takeovers.

The company on Friday announced the new functionality, saying in a blog post that it will make it “more difficult for unauthorized users to access your account.”

The feature works similarly to the two-step verification recently pushed out by Twitter, which had been experiencing high-profile account compromises.
